#5 swarm

Can’t believe this – our fifth swarm! Its strange that the bees have swarmed¬†onto the same place on Stef’s wall! Must be the pheramones left over from last time.

Managed to get the swarm out of the stones and into the nucleus box where they were pleased to get out of the wind.¬† Didn’t see the Queen but she must be in there somewhere. Now all we have to do is work out which hive they came from and whether we can unite the colony or provide them with a new hive.
