This morning i had another opportunity to tag along with kirkobeeo and maurice to rescue some bees.
[click on the pictures for a larger version]
inspect what is up there
Then a NUC box was taken up and the swarm was put in
The comb was cut and tied into the frames with kite string.
a spacer was taped on top
pollen and honey was added
We then drove to eagle rock.
Bees need to be removed with a so called "trap out".
They can leave the hive but not return.
clearly a lot of work had already been done on this project. the area was cleaned
2 one way traps were installed
A small hole was made in the nuc box and was put just a few inches from the one-way traps.
That was it.
Kirkobeeo will return frequently to monitor the progress.
