Swarm Season

When we got to the yard, there was a swarm hanging out on the side of one of the boxes.



Honeybee swarm of side of nuc box.

We used a quiet cloth to slowly scrape and funnel them into a new box.


From another colony, a mature laying queen was found and placed in a a cage to mark her...



And she was marked with green for the current year...




Now it's time to get back to inspecting the rest of the hives...


More later....
