Bee Back

So maybe our once in a lifetime experience was really a once a month occurance.
This time our neighbor came over to let us know that one of his hives divided and swarmed to one of our trees. Instead of cutting the branch off the tree, this time he brushed the bees into a cardboard box and put the box on top of a new hive box. He did this a few times until the queen was in the box. Again those bees had no interest in anything other than there queen. It was fun to watch this again. Now there are 3 hives behind our back fence. I have been assured this won't happen again but I bet it will! I'll let you know how much our garden produces this year.
