It's been a busy week in the bee swarm business. One swarm on Monday, interesting sort of swarm on Tuesday, bumble bee nest Wednesday and two swarms today one housed the other to go to a new home, Boyd collecting tomorrow.
The swarm that I placed in one of my hives today looked much smaller than the Monday swarm but when I tried to take my collection box top bars out to go back in the box got a very pleasant surprise, the girls had been busy(see below).
|This is only after 4 hours|
Think I'll have the weekend off swarms but if anyone else would like to collect one let me know and I'll pass on any calls
