Adopt A Hive – Picking Up A Second Swarm

Two weeks ago Matt came to pick up a swarm we put in his hive box. Today he picks up his second hive box with another swarm. Now he will have two hives going at his place and looks like I might have 50% converted him to going foundationless. 🙂

Below is a picture of a naturally built comb on a foundationless frame during his first inspection of the first hive he picked up. Out of ten frames seven have been drawn in his deep. (When we hived the swarm two of the ten frames were already drawn). Love the straight combs. 🙂  And check out that solid brood pattern.
