As I said before, I got hold of a swarm what moved into a old hive body.
But this is new news...
only half of the swarm, the other half moved into the sheds wall 2 feet away.
After checking the ones in the box after one week and not finding no eggs and queen, I bought one for them and there is eggs now and everything is fine.
The ones living in the wall, it looks like they have a queen, allot of pollen is being hauled in.
Now here is the question, what did happened?
Why did not all the bees stay together?
I made a makeshift box with some old and new frames, made a hole on the lower side and mounted it onto the wall, so the bees have to go thrue the box to get out!
Will I capture the queen this way???
I really like the calm behavior of the bees, it seems a mix of race, could be Italian, carniolans mix?
Grow shrubs & trees,...it's good for bees!
