First swarm

First swarm collected today and it had to be the easiest one ever. 

Bee's on a pallet at chest height quick knock into a box, 30 mins later sealed and in car. 

Now sat on top of hive waiting for my little lad as he wants to help put them in. 

Will post pictures later. 

We need some phone contacts as I had 3 other calls while collecting.


Update  on girls. Now nicely in bed, hopefully that's where they will stay, always the risk they will abscond with it being a new hive.

A few photo's

Still in the travel box, on top of the hive, just separated the bars so they could get use to the area

Out they come, all bars lifted together
In they go

Last few stragglers persuaded to get in


All top bars back on

 Just need to put the lid on.

All photo's courtesy of Jo my wife(from a distance in the field)

I'll give them till the weekend an see how they are doing.
