This footage of a swarm is similar to what I describe in the article in the Trending section of the Labroots website. The colony splits in a reproductive act. When you watch this, consider the entire colony as a super-organism reproducing itself. In the final third of the video, you can see the new colony cluster around a tree branch. They will stay there for up to a day before either being caught or seeking their own spot for a natural hive.
