Early Days

Early Days

In the early days, I learned how to deal with swarms. Here is the pictorial depiction of one such swarm, which was followed by my first honey harvest.

To get this swarm into a new hive, the key was to get the queen. Once the queen is in the new hive the remainder of the bees will follow.

Some construction is sometimes needed, as you can see in the above picture.

A tap of the branch provides a touch of persuasion and… they are in!

A few months later… I harvested my first ever honey.

Here I am, proudly holding up a frame full of honey, which will soon be extracted.
