  10. 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.
  11. Beekeeping has got a a great future with kids likes this
  12. Mate told me he had swarm on his fence and it had been there for 2 days, Shot down to Edgecumbe an was pretty happy to brush the bees gently into a box all went to plan, Got a couple stings was good to. hopefully they will be happy in there new home an draw out the new frames an get busy. Was a awesome Buzz for my 7 year old who loves bee keeping he is happy with his new hive.
  13. Thanks Tomm I've caught swarms before but have never tried putting traps out. Going to be over the moon if i get one.
