Just a little bee friend from one of the hives.

One of our girls from a hive visit earlier this year. We found out yesterday that one of our hives at our main apiary absconded. Sadness is kept in check by photos of cute bees.

Status photo for April 27, 2014 at the Lower yard. Added three supers, monitoring two hives with queen cells, checking next week for new queen from transferred queen cup in Almon (second from right). #wethreebeeks #jeffcobees #beekeeping

Status update. Things are looking good. Expecting swarms (or making splits) soon.

Swarm catch continues. This bucket eventually tipped over. This one is going a bit off the rails. Oh well. Jill did a great job cutting out this chuck of rat-king-vines-and-brush. #wethreebeeks #jeffcobees

First swarm of 2014 on April Fool’s Day! Sneaky bees!
