About 2 weeks after that escapade Mr. Dick came out and brought me 3 nucs. Yesterday I finished getting the last nuc into a hive body and now I'll be waiting about a week to put the supers on. Some great opportunities are coming for my honey business and I can't wait to see what God will work out! To be prepared for the rapid happenings that bees love to throw at you, then you need to have all your equipment together and ready to be used. So today I spent a few hours putting about 30 super frames together with my brother...only 40 more to go!
|Mrs. Debbie and Mr. Wayde helping us out... in a big way!|
|The bee swarm was incredible to watch.|
|We put a frame of brood into the bucket to help|
draw the bees into the waiting nuc.
|The 2nd swarm was smaller & about the same height up.|
|Working with these two was great and I was blessed|
to have them near.
|The honey bees bearded for a long time in|
the heat of the day...with a curious onlooker.
