Swarm update

We didn't get to do the hive inspection this evening we had planned. The weather turned against us. We have, however, successfully captured the swarm that appeared this afternoon. It is now housed in a new hive at Apiary 2. They were quite feisty and we each got stung a couple of times. The swarm was bigger than I first thought. Nevertheless, it brings out total of hives to 8, and increase of 6 on the month.

I took the photo below a couple of weeks ago when we first started dealing with swarms.
