My first feral catch
This week I got my first call to remove a hive approx. 18 feet up in a tree. The hive was actually built to a branch with exposed comb. In the middle of the night I climbed and cut it out and was successful to get most and the queen. I was able to make 5 good frames of the brood comb that was in the hive and salvage some empty comb to place. They took to the new home very well and now I will be challenged with getting them better established in the hive before winter. Feel free to offer up any advise or great ideas to help get them ready and healthy for winter.
