This is the time of year when having done all the hard work in Autumn preparing their bees for winter, beekeepers have to rely on the bees to look aft...

Swarm box is up...
April 9, 2015
Well its that time of year again... bees try to follow their instincts and look to swarm to spread their population. I'm always willing to take advantage of this and try to catch some bees to add to my colonies.
By putting out a bait hive I hope to catch 2 or 3 swarms like I did last year! One bait hive is already very busy with plenty of bees coming to take a look and even rival colonies fighting over the rights!
