Local Swarm Capture

Saw a post on the neighborhood community group about a large presence of bees. Usually this is yellow jackets or just a particularly tasty garden… but not this time! Swarm captured!

Very gentle ladies and very cooperative. A few scouts and stragglers could not be persuaded, but confident I got the queen and a very high percentage of her the swarm.  It’s only a quarter mile away from my apiary so I’ll swing back by with a small box just in case, as soon as I get this chonker of a swarm to its new home.


Dear Community

It is with deep regrets and sadness that I must announce there will be no honey harvest this year. The usual challenges of beekeeping, coupled with the increasingly erratic climate since Winter have been really hard on the hives this year and there will not be a harvest-able surplus. Thank you for all your support in the past, we hope to be able to bounce back next season.
