A New Hobby

Todd decided he wanted to add a few more more beehives to our property.  He decided to collect swarms. Here is a swarm up in a tree.
Todd puts on his bee suit.
Carries a box up the ladder into the tree.
Sweeps the bees into the box with a broom.
Closes the box.
Puts the box into the back of the truck and drives home.
He puts a new beehive box out.
And pours the swarm into its new home.
He collected 4 total swarms this spring for a total of 5.  More honey this fall!
