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.
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.
