Small swarm. How long did it take for them to build up?
Allen, I'm not sure if I understand your question my friend.
This was a swarm, no comb at all.
They had just flown in the day before.
Hope that helps.
Annette, swarms are just so much fun, just you and the bees, getting them into a new home.
Tommy, swarms down here, so far, are very accepting.
Once in a blue moon I might run across a swarm whereby I get a few stings but thus far this is not the norm.
Most of the swarms I deal with are more than happy to accept my efforts and new home I provide them.
When I go to Bud's I usually get laughed at because I usually have to put my veil on. :-D
Different bees down there.
