A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
Our neighbor called a couple of weeks ago to tell me there were bees in their driveway and wondered if they could be ours.
Beekeeper Brian was out of town, so he started explaining to me what to do. He sent me the following picture with the message – “there is the queen.”
I had no idea what he meant so Rachel stepped in.
Eventually we – that is Rachel – got the bees into a nuc (nucleus hive) and let them settle in.
I am very glad our neighbors do not mind having such interesting people living next door.
In fact, they were fascinated by the whole process and even covered the hive that night to keep the bees warm.
Rachel has earned her Beekeeper title. I’ll stick to documenting the excitement.
