Mountain View Hive Swarmed

Jeff from Mountain View adopted a hive last year and the colony kept growing in good numbers along with yielding a good amount of honey. Just weeks ago the hive swarmed. Jeff mentioned that he saw a swarm that could have been the first of the season with the original queen but didn’t see where it landed. Then he called me over to collect an after-swarm that landed in his neighbor’s tree.

After hiving the swarm we did a full inspection and found two queens roaming around in the hive along with at least 10 fully developed queen cells which we cut out to be used in splits.
