Hi - This is Betsy.
My husband and I are 3 year beekeepers with 4 standard hives looking to get up to a dozen - maybe.
We started by taking our county extension beekeeping course and becoming "Certified Beekeepers" in the NC Master Beekeeper Program.
Now we are settling in a bit with our bees...
An oak with a hive recently split with the majority of the hive falling to the ground. The bees are still clustered in the fallen log and there appears to be quite a bit of comb. Ideas on how to capture and hive? Should I just try to collect the honey? I don't know if there is even a queen.
