Swarm Transferred

The swarm we caught in the trap at the Aiken Huppstead is now installed in their new digs at Lake Becky. What I saw during the transfer isn’t exactly what I expcted.

Hive Inspection – Lake Becky – 20200320

First inspection of the year at the Lake Becky huppiary. One hive left alive last fall has overwintered and is building up. Split that colony to second hive. Third hive cleaned up and re-sited – awaiting bees.
