A springtime swarm stops by for a visit

When a homeowner at The Preserve in Eagle discovered a large cloud of bees swarming in an empty lot next to his home last week, he reached out to Coleman Homes to see if we might be able to help. Our resourceful Communities Manager Don was able to locate a couple of bee-keepers through the Treasure Valley Beekeepers Club, and in no time at all, the swarm was safely contained.
