Outbreak Explained

When everyone is saying that it could be a sign for a catastrophe, a specialist said otherwise. According to a bee expert, this could just be a part of their pre-productive season.

The occurrence is yet to be explained further, but Dra. Cleofas Cervencia has something to say,

“Kasi this season, may tinatawag tayong pre-productive swarm. Dumaan lang ‘yan diyan, hahanap sila ng permanent na matitirhan.”

[Due to our current weather and season, we have this pre-productive swarm. They are just looking for a permanent shelter.]
