I have an apiary.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I collected a swarm last night and they are still in the hive. They spent the day being busy busy busy. So did I so I plan to spend tomorrow watching them (in between helping to worm some lambs apparently Rolling Eyes)

The swarm came from a fellow beekeeper. It was in a open bottomed box wrapped in a sheet ready to just drop into the hive. How neat is that? Smile

Very Happy Good stuff! Where did you put them in the end?

Well done.
Now you have got your bees you will have to get some straw & make a skep, so you can catch your own swarms next year.

Very nice but that straw mask is slightly scary.

They are up at the top. It has shelter and plenty of flowers. You can admire it when you visit.

I think my Christmas presents are sorted for several years to come. (Mind you, I might change my mind when it all goes wrong.)
