Busy day with the bees…

Inspecting the hives this morning showed one of my colonies was going to swarm which it did bang on 1100.

However, it very helpfully settled on a sycamore tree about 8′ off the ground and I managed to house it temporarily in a box.

Then after a few hours working my plots, I finished a late lunch to see a swarm coming into my garden. They decided an ld nuc (nucleus hive) I had cleaned up would be a perfect spot for them.


These are not my bees, as I don’t have any nearby. But they’re mine, now, if they choose to stay.
