Swarm

<< < (2/3) > >>

RAST:
I checked the other trap for the first time yesterday and another swarm. I should'a tried this before. 

Jen:
Wow Rast! Free bees  ;D

Do you think these swarms came from your own hives?

RAST:
No, inspection on Thursday all showed good. A Sideliner parked close to here last year til the bear ran him off. I saw a hive in a hollow tree here not long ago.

Zweefer:
How is the swarm doing?

RAST:
They are both doing fine. The first has mostly filled an 8 frame and the second was transferred to an 8 frame on Monday. I took one 8 frame with a July 20 queen that just sets there in 6 frames, pulled her and did a combine on the second at the same time.
