First Swarm of Spring 2011

First swarm of 2011

First swarm of 2011

Swarm season begins on the first sunny day in March.  This swarm settled in a low branch of our peach tree.  In the morning we used a brush to sweep the bees into a hive body.  In addition we were able to video how we transferred the bees… and once I figure out how to post a video, you too will see how calm swarming bees are.  The trick is to move the Queen, the rest of the bees will follow.
