A Swarm at the Lowry’s
It is that time of year again. After spending all spring trying to build up the honeybees after a long winter, they get the mind to swarm. Of course if they are “free bees” that didn’t come from your apiary, well then swarm catching is much more fun.
These pictures were submitted to us by Denise Lowry. The picture on the top left shows this was a good sized swarm. The second picture has Phil Lowry up on the ladder to retrieve the swarm. It’s nice when they land lower to the ground, but it doesn’t always work out that way. And finally, after capturing the swarm, Phil shakes them into their new home.
Thanks for the pictures Denise!
