My church bee coloney may have swarmed. The guy in Childress called and said there was a swarm of bees in the trees behind the church. I told him those would probably be gone by the morning.

So now I'm guessing there will be less bees to mess with in the wall.

There will be a new queen in the wall.

There might be another colony to get out of the church or other place.

Yeah. Working my butt off trying to get the stuff made for all these bees.

Didn't realize beekeeping could spread so quickly. Not to mention the people already lining up for honey and pollenation service. I might have to get some under paid hired help. I pay weekly... I mean weakly.  shocked

So, are you going to re-queen any of these colonies Jerry?

Queens cost too much lately. We'll probably raise our own this year.

I would see if you could hold off and buy new queens in the fall. They will be cheaper and of a better quality, bye

Just got a call. That swarm of bees is still in that tree, that's three or four days they've been there. What are the chances of them still being there Saturday?

Brian,

I'll PM you on that.

It rained and was cold up there on Saturday and those bees stayed though all that. Then it was warmer today and they stayed. How warm does it have to be for the queen to fly? I was just wondering if the cooler weather kept them there.

Jerry, if they haven't found a place to call home yet, they might just set up shop in the tree. Here are some pictures of that very same phenomenon.

That link don't work for me. Could be firefox browser. I have seen pix of comb build in the open in tree brances. That's why I was wondering what the chances were of them staying put.

 I mint to tell you that the bees realy liked the starter strips that we gave them. Two of them they almost have completly filled out.

Just checked both my hives. I think I was right about the barn wall bees. I didn't get the queen. There were queen cells in the old brood comb. But that must have been a success as there is a lot of new brood in new comb they built from starter strips.

The other has also drawn a bit of the starter srtips. I saw pollen and possibly syrup and honey from old comb stored in the new stuff.

One good thing is, if the bees are still in the tree, it isn't very big. I think he said about seven feet tall.
