May Swarm Moving

This swarm came from one of my hives. Hannah, our farm apprentice, had never worked with bees before and look how comfortable she is. My husband Joseph filmed us moving the swarm off the bar of a lawn swing and into a top bar hive.

 

We’re smack dab in the middle of swarm season and it’s an exciting time. Swarms are how bees create more colonies and how the old queen renews her fertility.
