A Bale of Hay

Let me tell you a story...

There once was a Walnut tree


That was in fact a Bee Tree


That had Swarmed this very morning


So the local beekeeper clipped the swarm down


and placed it in a borrowed Nuc box


Where the Queen felt right at home


and they all lived happily ever after


The End

Sa-weet looking bees, Hemlock! I caught a swam on Wednesday morning. I got a call that a swarm landed on a property line stake in Danville, Virginia. So I made the trip, put them on a nuc on the property, and picked them up Wednesday night. I plan to put them in a permanent box on Thursday! Gotta love some free-bees!

immwia,
Actually these are NEW bees!. I did catch Myrina's swarm though. That post is here http://beavercreekbees.blogspot.com/2011/05/caught-em-sort-of.html

Mark,
Lets here it for free bees! Danville huh, I need to get back down there to get nuc for these bees but they're out right now.

Moon Skin,
Glad you liked it. If these bees can survive Winter to become a full hive next year their name will be Mab.
