5+ Year Old Hive Relocating, Homeowners As New Beekeepers – Menlo Park

Did a site check the other day after receiving a call from Sara of Menlo Park. They recently bought a house and is currently remodeling it. The neighbor told them that the hive have been there for over 5 years and each year it would throw off a couple of swarms. And from the looks of it, they are hot and overcrowded again. Possibly soon they will swarm again.

What’s so cool is that Sara and her husband Nick wants to relocate the bees to their backyard. So I sent them my beginner equipment list for them to order everything, then we will do a cutout and relocate them into Langstroth hive boxes so they can continue to thrive in the same neighborhood.
