Pictures of Swarm





After we left last night, Mark cut down the tree that some of the swarm was still clinging to and shook the rest of the bees into the hive. They closed up both of the hives for the night and tied them up. We moved both hives to my aunt's house this morning.

The full hive looks very happy and healthy and big.

The smaller hive isn't showing mush activity and when I peeked under the lid, there were quite a few bees, but they were all huddled on one side of the box and there were not a lot of them. If there is a Queen with them, they will be fine, if not...

We set both hives up on a pallet we grabbed off the side of my aunt's garage and set up a feeder for them. This is our first use of HoneyBHealthy. We'll see if we notice anything other than just how yummy good it smells in the sugar water!
