Catching a Swarm

Wednesday afternoon and I am at work.  I get a text from Mary, The Reluctant Beekeeper.

20160511_124057_HDR1There is a swarm in the nectarine tree.  But even though she doesn’t really enjoy it, The Reluctant Beekeeper has it covered and gets the queen into an empty hive.

Soon the new hive is settled in with the other hives in the yard.

Thanks to The Reluctant Beekeeper for catching the swarm.
