Yesterday, one of my colonies from last year decided to swarm. Luckily, I managed to catch them before they left. Pictured is another of my hive buddies, my dad. He is fastening the bottom board to the brood box with screws which makes it easier to lift and transport these girls to their new home in the Walnut Grove Apiary. Catching this swarm brings my colony count to 27 for this year so far.
