Swarm report (July 2017)

Thank you so much Caroline for manning the lines while I was away. It’s been a BUSY Summer! Enjoy the heat everyone! My bees certainly seem to love it. Tons of honey and brood even in the city hives. My sun room where I store my empty bee boxes looks like a swarm has arrived! They just can’t seem to find their way back out properly despite all the open doors and windows. The mailman refuses to bring my mail so we have moved our mailbox. Visitors don’t knock on my front door anymore. I may have to vacuum them all out and do a catch and release of the neighbourhood honey bees in the evenings. Don’t want my home to become a “Jupiter Ascending” Victorian but if they start building comb it might just look like one right out of the movie.
