  1. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/115932126/hundreds-of-bees-swarm-house-in-dunedin Can't say too many of my own bees look ready to swarm just yet but someone else's bees are obviously doing alright.
  2. Hello, Recently did a bee removal and relocated the bees,... way beyond three miles to their new location. The queen was moved safely with the bees. I did not shut the bees in and seal the hive for 48-72 hours since it was well beyond 3 miles to the new location, but the bees swarmed anyways, (probably about two days later after I moved them.) The colony vacated the brood and honey stores I had rubber-banded into the new hive box and frames. I've read that if it's less than three miles to shut them in with food and water and proper ventilation, and then re-orient them after

I'm confident it is PMS (full inspection today, and AFB test kit used as insurance). The final few hundred bees and non-laying queen are on their way out. I'm planning to; 1. Freeze frames (48hrs) 2. Restart with a new nuc ASAP I don't have time for swarm catching, and I've never seen one in our neighbourhood. So that's not really a viable option. Should I start with one nuc? Or two?
  5. I've read some great books regarding swarms, including Honeybee Democracy by Thomas Seeley (great book), and have made up some swarm 'traps'. What I'd like to know is... is it best to put your traps in evergreen or deciduous trees? Seeley suggests that pines aren't great and I've seen traps out in the open on poles. I'll put them up as high as my ladder goes, face the entrance north, keep them sheltered from constant, direct sun etc,. I have access to some very nice beach trees and some big exotic's all near each other... the beach trees look great, but will they hide the trap too wel
