Oh no, not another swarm!
Just when I thought we had seen the last swarm from our hives, suddenly another appears. I went to Apiary 1 this moning and there was a swarm sitting on an artichoke plant. At least we have some more equipment so I will be able to collect the swarm knowing I have a hive to put it into. We will be doing a full inspection of the ives on Apiary 1 tonight. We may even get some honey! Fingers crossed.
