Unfortunately, when I looked in the transport hive that contained the swarm from Draves, they were basically all dead! I'm not exactly sure why; possibly because I didn't give them a feeder than night I dropped them off. It was a sad sight.
I then ran over to Teutopolis and met with Doug who showed me the small swarm they found. I placed it in a transport nuc and brought it to the farm. I placed it in my swarm catcher nuc with some sugar water inside the box to see what they would do. They are awefully small, but we'll see what they do in a day.
This afternoon we had the Girl Scouts out to the farm, and I wanted them to have a chance to see the bees up close, so I installed plexiglass in the new observation hive I bought at the HAS conference and loaded them with a couple frames of bees from one of the hives. It turned out pretty good, though I need to trim the glass a little. The girls had a lot of fun watching the bees!
