hey i bought a new hive on saturday but it was very late when I got home so i left the hive in the driveway ( i live in the country) over night.
in the morning i went to move the hive to the bee yard and on the front of the box were a bunch of bees as I got closer I could see tat there was a small cluster in the vine maple tree above my new hive. oh by the way the new hive was screened close at this time. one quick shake of the branch one new swarm in the nuc box. Johns Bees
