Answers (1)


Catching and hiving swarms is an important part of beekeeping. When bees swarm, they leave their original hive to start a new colony. Catching and hiving the swarm helps to prevent the bees from leaving the hive, which can lead to a loss of bees and a decrease in honey production. Therefore, option 2 is the correct answer.
