Good day! I picked up a swarm LATE last night and will be installing them in my first TBH this morning. I received the swarm call yesterday morning, but was out of town so couldn't get to them until about 9ish. Luckily, they were still there, but the little spruce branch they landed on had broke by that time and they were all in a pile in the grass. I wasn't sure how I was going to go about getting them in the box, but they sort of made the decision for me. The mass of bees started migrating across the grass to the left, so I laid the box on edge in front of them and, voila, they moved right in.
SO! Getting to the point, I'm really excited to finally having bees in my TBH. This is a new adventure for me
