I got a call the night before to pick up a swarm of bees from a home in the suburbs of Sydney Australia.
The swarm is rather large about the size of two basketballs. I shake the bees into a box, wait for any flying bees to return to the box, then house them in a new hive.
The next video shows them being housed in a five frame nucleus hive
This video shows the bees being placed in a permanent home
Recorded 3 Oct 2015, on my Samsung Note 3
Apologies for the poor camera work. its pretty hard to do record this process on your own wearing gloves and using a camera phone, with thousands of potentially angry bees buzzing all over
Next time ill get an apprentice to help with the filming
