I am learning more about swarms than I want to....hive swarmed on the 26th....and again today...started out as a nice sized orientation flight and kept on going...right to the top of the tallest tree near the hive. Looks like a good sized swarm...cant believe I still have any bees.
The frames I removed have to be in the freezer until tomorrow. I was going to do another check and remove 3 more frames of honey and put those back in....may still do it.
I hope there are enough bees to keep the wax moths out of the hive.
The frames in the freezer have been in there for over 48 hrs ...is that long enough to kill any pests? I could suit up and do it now.
Here is the swarm that just left.
