Swarm Catching – 12

 

4/30/2016 We removed a small hive of a few thousand bees from a water shut off valve located in the front yard of a house in Foxfire . Looking as hard and careful as we could, we never spotted the queen.  We cut out all of the comb and transferred to frames in a brood box which will be set up in our apiary.
