FIRST SWARM 2013
Hello Everyone !
I have capture my first swarm of the year. It was pretty high - under a soffit in a fairly expensive home. I removed the first 3 panels to reveal this:
It was a medium sized swarm that had settled here for the past 3 or 4 days. It was building comb as you can see in this next picture
I transferred the ball of the bees - wax and all into a transfer box with a few frames and scented with the swarm lure. There was one frame of honey too . I will go back in the evening to collect the transfer box once the bees have settled into the box for the night.
