Great to have the kids involved, and its good to see your boy getting a swarm.

I have my 8 year old daughter to help me .... complete with custom painted pink hive tool!

This was on the Milk tanker track on the electric fence after a quick check with the blade of grass confirming strong current a quick call to mate an got the electric fence turned off. Sure beats climbing a ladder.

@Glen Paterson we caught one last Wednesday on our rural road a km away.

The electric fence was on, but we were able to work with it.

No zaps or stings
