My third swarm call has finally gone better than the previous ones.
My second swarm call proved more interesting and less sad than the first.
This year is not going as I have hoped, and the wax moths are not helping.
Two of the hives are in need of queens so I try some virgin queens from a local breeder.
My first swarm call and its unfortunate end.
After an unfortunate winter and vandalism leaves me with no surviving hives of 4 strong ones I get set to start on my third year of bee keeping.
While I was away someone decided to open up three of the hives and leave them exposed to the elements.
This past week I took advantage of the unusually warm weather to do a little winter feeding for the hives.
The west Philly hives made it out through the storm just fine, but the same cannot be said for other east coast bees.
A hurricane is coming and bees must prepare themselves for the storm!
