Next on the Swarm List

Thanks to the Ranger at the Morrison Nature Center, a local bee club gave us a swarm, and we're ready to install them. I'm kinda nervous, but they sound anxious. It was a hot drive across town, and the cardboard box is sealed with duct tape. I don't think it has enough air holes in it.

We have no idea what's inside, but there's lots of buzzing and we can hear them crawling around. It's kind of creepy. I've removed a few top bars to make an opening for the bees to drop into. Hopefully it's big enough.
