Beehives

Since we caught a swarm of bees last Friday, I spent all of Saturday building a couple of beehives.

These are top bar hives (a completely different beehive than the standard box hives we’re used to) and they’re four foot long each.

Mary Cate transferred the bees to the new hive, and we’ve got one left over in case we get a chance to catch another swarm this year.

Addition: Mary Cate talks about the bee transfer here.
