After yesterday’s adventures with the bees swarming, you’d think today would be a bit less eventful. Unfortunately, it wasn’t.
Stephen went outside to leave for work and could hear buzzing. He looked around, and discovered that the hive that tried to swarm yesterday had completely left the hive and was resting at the top of a tree across the yard.
He managed to catch the queen yesterday, so she was already in the queen cage in the hive today. The bees won’t go anywhere without the queen, and since she can’t get out of the hive to go with them, the swarm returned home.
I’m not sure what happens next. Hopefully the bees will become satisfied with their current home again, but if not, well, guess I have more to learn about beekeeping!
