Free Bees!

OH had a disaster with his bees over winter-a woodpecker kindly made a new entrance for a mouse and everything was nibbled away! No queen, no eggs, no larvae, no honey, very little comb. We have so much on at the moment he wasn't going to bother trying to track down another swarm. However a friend of mine had a swarm in her front yard and she rang me this evening to see if we wanted it. OH had to take DS1 to piano lesson anyway so he popped round there and had an easy task boxing them up and bringing them home! They are now safely tucked up in their new hive AND he had a quick look in the other one as there still seemed to be some activity and it looks like praps there is a queen in there as things are still going on!
The wonderful world of the bees!
