Sydney spring bee swarms

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:30 pm on 26 October 2018

The streets of Sydney are abuzz with bee swarms this spring. 

While there is always a swarming season, this year has seen hundreds of calls being made to beekeepers to come and collect the swarms from schools, cars and homes. 

Doug Purdie is a co-founder of The Urban Beehive in Sydney and he thinks people don't need to be too concerned.
