Do Swarms Choose A Location Before Swarming?

The inquiry is often made, Do all swarms have a place looked out before

leaving the parent stock? The answer to this must ever be guess-work. I

could offer some circumstances indicating the affirmative very

strongly, and as much for the negative; and will let it pass at that.

Yet I think if bees are properly cared for, that ninety-nine swarms in

a hundred will prefer a good clean hive to a rotten tree in the woods.
