Last week we broght home the swarm trap but never had time to go in to see what was really inside the hive. Yesterday we had a chance after installing a swarm in my yard and we were surprised after lifting the cover. We thought it was a fairly small swarm but looks like it was a pretty decent size one that moved into my bait trap. Eight frames have comb but not complete. So the hive is about 60% full.
This colony already have brood of all stages. The queen has been busy!
And here’s our mighty queen bee.
