I met Terri Tattan when she organized (and I helped staff) a beekeeper’s display at Whole Foods, where Terri works. She became interested in beekeeping, joined our club, and is a stalwart member now.
Whole Foods has an observation hive, a beautifully built glass-sided, rotating hive that has a L O N G tube to the outside of the store. The bees come and go all day long.
Well, a few days ago the bees swarmed. Terri ran home, got her beekeeper’s suit, and captured the swarm right out of the Whole Foods parking lot..
I’m happy to report that the bees are still with her, and appear to be happy in their new home. Congratulations on your first swarm-capture, Terri!
BEEattitude for Day #539:
Blessed are those who help us find good homes, for they shall receive the extra honey we make.
