Swarm Installed to Top Bar Hive – 9 April 2011

Follow the first link to view a slideshow of photos taken Saturday, 9 April 2011. The fellow doing all the work is Steve Buckner. The bees were a swarm that Steve captured in swarm trap just two days earlier. The trap was baited with lemongrass oil and was placed near his home on Tuesday, 5 April 2011. On Thursday, the trap was filled with bees, and on Saturday, the bees were introduced to their new living quarters in my back yard.
