Well, I haven't posted any swarm pics or cut-out pics in a few days, not cause I didn't do any, but because I forgot my camera yesterday and this morning, I couldn't locate it, but later found it in my truck.
Yesterday, I did a cut-out of a two week old hive and caught a swarm in the evening, well two, if you count the one at my house!!! The cut-out was in Destrehan, Louisiana and the swarm I collected in a section of Metairie, called Old Metairie.
This morning I caught a swarm in Marrero, that was a little grumpy but calmed down after they were fed. Later on my friend Bailey, his wife Peggy and I set all three colonies up.
Peggy is a bee charmer, she likes the bees and the bees apparently like her just fine, as she wears absolutely no protection, ever!
I took some pics of the event, and btw, check out Bailey's official blue bee suit, courtesy of father n law, Russel. Russel, btw, Peggy's Dad, is my go to man when Bailey's at work and can't pick up any bees I've collected!
Anyway, it was great to go by and make a quick visit with them and we had fun setting up the colonies and checking boxes. It was good we did that cause we saw one that is superceding its queen, which is pictured.
Bailey and I have been busy with bees, but we have been talking about our next fishing trip, which I hope will be real soon!!! I think we both need a trip!
