Some days are just priceless. While I was clearing brush from around an electric fence in one yard Susan came to tell me that there “the bees were swarming.” We got back to the house and bees were moving in to a nuc box I placed only this morning as a swarm trap. There are 2 or 3 ancient combs in the five frame nuc box.
The cat “No’Shy” short for “Not Shy” was unimpressed with the proceedings.
The swarm came from another one of my yards. It was easy to see which hive thanks to all the activity.
I’ll give them a day or two to settle into their new home and then move them back to the yard they swarmed from – they will get a new home to call their own!
