Hi guys, I got called out yesterday to collect another swarm yesterday.
While I was on my way over I got another call to say the swarm had moved on but I decided to go look around anyway.
When I arrived there were maybe half a dozen bees hanging around the tree where they were and then gradually more and more bees started returning.
When I found and captured the queen she looked to be hurt/damaged. I'm not sure if I hurt her when catching her in the cage or if she is deformed? She seemed to be paralysed down the left hand side of her body. Anyone see this before?
