Swarm Two 2015

We caught our second swarm today! This one was resting on a potted plant at a house boat. Here’s what it looked like when we arrived. (That’s water behind the plant.) Btw, just click on the photos to see them larger.

Here’s a video of the first handful going into the box.

When we had most of the bees in the box, these few that were left lined right up and marched in to join their friends.

Here we are with messed up hair (well, mine) and happy bee-shiny faces!

We got home just as the sun was setting and got the bees safely into their new hive.
