Swarm Collection


In my own Apiary a week ago I noticed queen cells but could not find the queen, assumed she had gone and left the colony to sort itself out. Today it did by swarming in the top of the closest Hazel tree. Apart from having to climb the tree in the first place the collection went reasonably smoothly and we were able to prune the tree at the same time.
