This afternoon we will finally get to meet the honeybee swarm that moved into one of our traps while we were away. The kids are very excited since the trap is in their play structure in our backyard! Stay tuned for the update later today! . . . #honeybees #beekeeping #beekeepingadventures #beehives #apiarylife #honeybeeswarm #swarm #farmlife #farmfamily #farmgirl

Status report! I made 5 fume boards this morning & used them to harvest Charlotte, NC honey today. Verdict: I really like them! No induced robbing, as there is with other methods. No Small Hive Beetle sliming damage like with escape boards. Very calm day of solo harvesting. This is likely my new “standard practice” method.

Update! This little March 21 (virgin queen)swarm sure did well. I pulled 70lbs of honey from it today. Three weeks ago I split it into 3 overflowing single-deep hives. Two of those are bringing in Sourwood honey now. You just can’t beat the “voltage” of an early season swarm!

Wow. The more I get to live the Nourishing Farmstead Life the more I fall in Love with it! What a blessing to be able to cast aside plans and call a friend around the corner to help catch this honey bee swarm on our property at OASIS TLC. I needed to have this experience to learn, appreciate and fall more deeply in love with the honey bee. They were so docile, throughout this process, I stood barefoot with no shirt on taping this process, and didn’t get stung once! This is how bee keeping should be. They are truly magical BEEings! We think we relocated the queen on the initial move. Afterwords we went back and harvested the remaining swarm. We are gonna check in on them in the evening when they re calming down for the night. We observed the scouts and workers dispersing back into the woods, which is a good sign the queen and the drones are spraying their pheromones as a signal that they have found a new home. There’s a huge bee democracy and lots of communication between the scouts looking for a new hive and the workers and drones at the swarm. Fascinating stuff! #catchingaswarm #honeybees #honeybeeswarm #beekeeping #OASISTLC #farmstead #naturelovers #beelove #savethebees

Mr Bick, from Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities, is King of the Swarm Selfie. Every year he helps keep an eye on the hives at Andrews Farm. Every year we get a few of these pics to let us know there is a swarm ready to capture. #hobeybee #richvalleyapiary #ccoya #honeybeeswarm

This was probably the coolest part about the swarm retrieval yesterday. I felt like a magician or something, just holding that frame there and they all just marched right on! There was nothing on that frame to attract them, just plastic foundation and they seemed to know exactly what I wanted them to do. Bees are fascinating! #honeybeeswarm

It happened, one of my hives swarmed right under my nose! I was out searching for the very elusive queen in the swarm we caught a few weeks back. Then I heard the unmistakable roar. First video is 18 minutes before they started. I was noticing the drastic difference in activity at the entrances of each colony. Second video is obvious. Third video is immediately after, they go right back to business as usual. I even saw the queen make her exit right before she got tumbled to the ground. Last photo is them all quietly assembled into the hive we were lucky enough to get them into after using a bucket on a pole to retrieve them from up in the tree. #honeybeeswarm

#festooning #honeybeeswarm these girls are in overdrive building new comb. As a newly caught swarm they quickly begin making honeycomb for the queen to lay eggs and get the colony growing. Holding hands #workingtogether #longlivethequeen

1) Swarm Commander 2) Recycle a vented bottle. 3) Hang from a tree. 4) Wait 5) Get a swarm you can reach! (June 29th, but I’ll take it.)

Update on our captured swarm from last month... They are really thriving! Had to split them into a second hive shortly after we got them settled in. Now we are just building them stronger before the fall nectar flow. Hooray! Look for the #queenbee🐝 in the last photo, I got a good picture of her! #newfamilymembers #beekeeping #honeybees #honeybeeswarm #hopingforhoney #fruitfulambitions

Check this out! We suddenly had a swarm of honey bees join us in their quest for a new home and thankfully we had Almosta Apiary not ten feet away to help safely wrangle our favorite pollinator. 🐝 • • • #savethebees #pollinatorsofinstagram #savethepollinators #honeybees #honeybeeswarm #flx #myflxtbex #fingerlakes #farmersmarketny

Swarming! 🐝 Our bees were swarming nice and early this morning!

I recently had the amazing opportunity to witness beekeepers managing a swarm. Did you know that honeybees in a swarm are looking for a new place to live? These bees were relocated to an empty hive in the farm’s apiary, and are happily adjusting to their new home. 🐝 #Apismellifera #honeybee #honeybeeswarm #beekeeping #didyouknow #bees #naturefacts #naturalcuriosity #biologyfacts #farmlife

From a few years ago, but one of my first hive rescues! 🐝 This was down in Atlantic City during the summer of 2016 on an especially hot day. I had forgotten the cooler of water back home but fortunately the homeowner was super nice and gave me and @laurenroynestad copious amounts of San Pelligrino😅🍾 #bees #beekeeping #honeybees #butricobees #beerescue #beekeepersofinstagram #beegram #honeybeeswarm #honeybeehive #summer #hot #hotbees

Ever wonder what a swarm of honeybees looks like? Look no further. This swarm was spotted on my neighbors property and we did try to catch them (approx 30k bees). We scaled the tree, cut limbs, and relocated them to a new home without success multiple times. The bees just wouldn't beehave. 🐝 🍯 #honeybees #beekeeper #honeybeeswarm #savethebees

Bees in the trees!!! Two swarms from one hive. Luckily they chose the shortest trees in the neighborhood and they happen to be on our property. So glad we weren't at work because it was really cool to watch. Both swarms were successfully retrieved by beekeeper @pro.austin 🐝💛🐝 #swarmselfie #honeybee #swarm #beekeeping #marriedtoabeekeeper #bees #honeybeeswarm #washingtonhoneybees

32years of age and I’ve finally seen a swarm of bees. Not sure I’m happy they are right out side my house. But they don’t scare me like wasps do. #swarmofbees #beeswarm🐝 #honeybeeswarm #honeyswarm

Got this mess sorted out for tonight. But it sure was a yard sale in the thick of it! Found virgin queen & caged her for safety while working hive that produced MANY queen cells. As I’m working it erupted into swarm, which settled onto caged VQ! Split hive into 2 single & 1/2 hives. Then placed caged VQ into an empty single & let swarm settle with her. Finally, set up 3 nucs with capped queen cells from main hive & boosted with 3 more frames capped brood & food into each from surrounding hives. Finished each nuc with 1fr drawn comb. Replaced all donor frames with empty drawn comb to keep donor hives in forward motion. #thinkfast #problemsolving

Things got really exciting today, and we were able to catch a honey bee swarm at Carl Von Linné Eementary school. Remember that when bees swarm they are docile. If you see a swarm do not call the exterminator call a local beekeeper or call us! #belmontfeedandseed #avondale #carlvonlinne #swarmcatching #honeybeeswarm #honeybees #savethebees

Sometimes you are talking to a friend and are suddenly surrounded by a sea of insects and realize you have come across a swarm of honeybees. Unlike how they sound, swarms are not typically dangerous to people. Scout bees go out from a colony and look for a new nesting spot. Once a suitable spot is found a queen and the majority of worker bees leave to create a new colony. Beekeepers were called. Really interesting to see. #Toronto #nature #bee #honeybee #honeybees #swarms #honeybeeswarm #insect #insects #tree #urbannature #natureisamazing #justanotherdayinoutdoored #outdoored #outside #dontworryididntgetstung #beeallergy #seaofbees

They say if you build it, it will come. Stacked about 6 boxes in front my house, had old frames and scraps of honey left. Used some #swarmlure and about a week later, #bees moved in! #luck #honeybeeswarm #pennswoods #pawilds #pennsylvania #honeybee #beek #beekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #savethebees

Look what I got yesterday. A friend @morningstarrceramics was having coffee with her friend @flycatcherdiy and he said he saw a #honeybeeswarm So I got the call about it. It was a pretty simple procedure, they were very cooperative. That is swarm #1 this year! Queen plus 6000 bees. #honey #bees #beehive #spring #londonontario #dundas #eastlondon #middlesexcounty #beehive #apiary #wax #swarm

When your bees swam to a 60ft perch on Sunday, disappear on Monday, show up 10ft from the hive on Wednesday, you make a new hive. It’s what you do. 🦎 #pollenator #honeybeesofinstagram #honeybee #honeybeeswarm #swarm
