15,000 Swarming Honey Bees

Beekeeper Phil Ramsey of San Ysidro, N.M. has been working with bees for more than twenty years and said the swarm of bees he recently removed from a Northeast neighborhood was one of the biggest he's seen. He estimated that there were between ten thousand and fifteen thousand bees forming a giant "glob" on a tree. Watch as Ramsey uses a low-tech approach to collect the bees.
