My first Bee swarm in 20 years



I got a Bee keeper to re-home them

Thats a hunker and worth quite a bit to the bee keeper too. A swarm in June is worth a silver spoon.

I was only happy not to have to treat them. I was told i will be invited to a swarm gather HOW TO meeting

That's a nice one---wish they were all as easy to take as that one must have been,you could have had beekeepers bidding to take it.

Lottie  i was told people were selling swarms for a 100    

Is this true?

Possibly---I'd certainly have paid a decent amount to take a good swarm like that in an easy place as I have spare hives at the minute.
