Adopt-A-Hive – Wine Barrel Bees Update – Sunnyvale Beekeeping

At the end of April we transferred a colony of bees from a wine barrel into a hive box and made a new beekeeper in the process. Friday afternoon I met up with Rob of Sunnyvale to give him a beekeeping 101 lesson while inspecting his hive.


The bees have not occupied 80% of the first medium box so we added a second on top. There are a ton of brood in the hive and soon the population will be more than doubled or even more.


Rob very happy with his first bee hive!
