Another day, another swarm!

Well another day, and another swarm in the same garden!

I was called by a guy in a local village that had the swarm last week, but this time he had another swarm in his garden, but this time in a leylandii hedge, and again it was near the top at around 3m up. I tried to brush the bees into the skep, but they were not interested, so I placed the skep ontop of a basketball hoop, and hey presto, the bees went straight in once it started raining. The bees have now been re-housed in a hive which has been cleaned and spruced up – here’s hoping that they like their new home and decide to stay.
