Jennifer first contacted me about a month or so ago regarding assisting her on capturing a swarm from her friend’s yard to put in her top bar hive but then that swarm flew off a few hours after she called me and the TBH she ordered from Bee Thinking hasn’t arrived yet. So we waited for the hive to arrive and just last weekend we placed the Van Buren (B) bees from the Mountain View cutout of a newly established colony into Jennifer’s TBH.
Jennifer’s first peek into her TBH housing her new colony of honey bees.
There’s about 4 to 5 pounds of bees in the hive.
Thanks Jennifer for adopting these bees!
