Why is this colony considered "feral"?

It's considered "feral" because it's not managed by humans (beekeepers). This kind of colony is known as a "feral" or "wild bee" colony or "out in the wild."

Kathy, in mid-September a swarm of bees passed through my yard and stayed on an umbrella pole for about an hour. I live near North Orchard Avenue in Vacaville. Could these be from this colony? A beekeeper told me that it was an unusual time for bees to swarm.
