Large Swarm Rescued in Los Altos Hills

Friday we rescued a large swarm in Los Altos Hills. John was at home when he saw and heard a large honey bee swarm move over his yard and land on his oak tree. The bees were still forming a cluster when he called. We arrived later in the evening to capture the bees and provide them with a nice home. We did a little trimming before my dad cut the main branch they were on while I held onto the cluster of bees and slowly lowered them into two medium hive boxes.

Thanks John for calling us to save our local honeybees!
