Our 1st Swarm of 2011

Mary was working in the breeding yard with our intern while I was putting together deeps by the honey house – Mary later recounted the roar they heard coming from Hive #107.  In a few minutes the swarm landed in a small  tree about 100 feet away from its original hive. Within a half hour Mary and our intern  scooped up the swarm and  created a new hive. They found the queen and it was marked  green from 2009.
