Swarm

Phil kindly gave me a *huge* swarm he captured last night. At a rough guess, at least 1kg, which means around 10,000 bees.

The swarm is now in a WBC hive with deep brood box, and one super (drawn) above the queen excluder. I fed them with one litre of 1:1 syrup.

Lucky man.....a swarm......I am still waiting for my bees. I am considering stealth tactics to get some bees!

Hope all well.

Aw! So envious. I've never seen a swarm that big!
