Swarming

There is a potential that swarming could occur earlier this year due to the fantastic weather we’ve had so far! Having inspected a hive today the bees had already started building queen cells, so we carried out an artificial swarm. An artificial swarm involves walking away from the site to another with a queen cell and nurse bees, while leaving a couple of queen cells in the original hive.
