Recently I received calls with honey bees living inside a wine barrel Sunnyvale and a small 5 gallon keg in Los Altos. The wine barrel colony we’re going to turn them into bees for the owner. +1 for us, another new beekeeper! 🙂
Wednesday night we picked up a small keg in Los Altos. You can gauge the size of the barrel with reference to the door on the shed. It was easy to pick up since it’s a new swarm, and from the weight of it the colony isn’t that big. We’ll get pictures shortly when we transfer them into hive boxes.
