April 27, 2017 Swarm Catch and Transfer

BONS member, Doug Koch, and a visiting cousin from Vermont get together for a little bee action!  The bees were removed from a lilac bush and relocated into an empty hive. So, it's back to work for the bees!

It was 56 degrees today, so I took the opportunity to powder sugar dust the bees in this one hive. A couple of weeks ago, they had a lot more crawlers on the ground beside the hive than the other hives, and I found a mite on one of those bees. Since the queens are starting to brood up, I wanted to get this done while I had the chance. I don't normally pull colonies apart in the middle of winter, but this was an extreme circumstance.
