One of my hives swarmed while I was working on the hive next to it last week. Didn't have time to get a picture they poured out so fast.

They clustered nearby so I managed to get them smiley






About half the bees ended up in the box and half on my arm and on the grass. But the queen must have gone in the box as they all ran inside.






cheers

Did you get the queen, just they'll run inside without the queen.

Picked up a hive in a bird box this evening. They were happy to let us take the whole box so we've taken it home for now and will take it out to our farm next week so we can do a cut out at our leisure.



More photos to come.

Very good. Looking forward to seeing pictures on how go get on transferring the combs.

Someone asked me to remove a possum box with a colony of bees in it. But they have not called back to arrange a time.

May be its getting a bit late in the season (Victoria) for colony removal?


cheers

Yeh, possibly a bit late, still got plenty of dandelions in flower here though. Going to have a crack at this one on Saturday if the weather is ok.

If you do remove the possum box now, I'd suggest moving the box to your sight and overwintering. Transfer it to a proper box once the swarms start. I think if you transfer them now the set back would be too great.

Well we did the cut out 2 weeks ago now, nosh or problems. There was a birds nest in the bottom of the box and the comb was tied into that which was a bit of a hassle but otherwise it went well.
The bad news is that some of our neighbours cattle got in to our house yard and knocked over the table the bees were on, spilling the frames on to the ground. By the time we got there the all the bees were gone, no sight of them anywhere. I can only hope that they absconded and found a nice warm hollow to live in. There is still lots of dandelion and some eucalypts flowering so maybe they will make it.

I did a hollow tree nest transfer on Sunday, couldn't see a queen, tree had fallen to ground and smashed nest up a bit, transferred all comb to frames. Have another small one to do tomorrow, hope to get queen and mix with the other one.

First swarm for this season. One of my 2 hives in Heathmont decided to swarm yesterday.

Funnily enough I split this hive 3 weeks ago (removed 3 brood frames and opened up the brood), and did not see any queen cells at the time. So I was not expecting them to swarm so soon.




In they go

Here's a couple of photo essays my (15 yr old) daughter has posted on the facebook page of the Beekeepers Association of the ACT, showing the re-homing of bees from a speaker box and a bird box
