A bee swarm at the Hop Garden

David and Sarah, who run the Hop Garden in High Spen, Gateshead, contacted me last week to tell me there was a bee swarm next to their gate. So in the evening we popped up with our swarm box. We collected the swarm but had to leave the box overnight so that the remaining bees could find their way to it. It meant a return at 5am to collect the box. The swarm was then successfully added to a hive on our Farside plot.

Many thanks to David and Sarah for the tip off.

Happy to help - and also to eat any spare honey you might have ;)
