My Warre finally got started!

June 18th, 2010 | No Comments

Last week it finally happened. I caught my first swarm from one of my hives. It was extremely easy: the bees just crawled up the wall and clustered underneath the roof. I collected them in my swarm box and introduced them into the Warre hive with two boxes.
Swarms are notorious for fast build up so lets see how long it takes them to fill the first two boxes… At a clients apiary I have seen that a swarm had built as much combs in two week what the package bees took seven weeks to build.
