August Swarm Capture
Received phone call today from Allison Buzzard from Beecher City that she had a bee swarm in a tree in her yard she wanted removed. So, after work Aaron, Seth, and myself headed out to capture the bees. As you can see in the pictures, it was a pretty good sized swarm and the boys had a lot of fun working with the bees and the bee vaccuum...this was Seth's first swarm capture. Allison was a bit nervous at first, but she joined us after some encouragement and learned quit a bit about the bees. We then took the swarm to the farm and placed them in a nuc with sugar water available until Saturday when I'll put them in a regular hive.
