During spring we had four swarms which Mark was able to catch and rehome. This one landed in our mulberry tree, and Mark cut the branch they were attached to and they dropped into the hive.
Here's a closer look at a swarm that flew into a shrub in our market garden. They were also successfully rehomed.
A lovely full frame ready to spin...
There's enough for us and some to sell on our market stall at the Maitland Harvest Markets..
And now we have ventured into making Mead. Yum! a beautiful refreshing drink for these long hot summer days.
