April 9th 2011 - Swarm

They don't get much easier than this. I left several bait hives out in my back garden and today a swarm took advantage. They decided to ignore all the larger hives and went for the one with the oldest combs.

A few hours later I transferred them into my nice new national poly hive with one old stores comb and four new wax coated plastic combs and one with regular wax foundation.

Happy days !
