"I shook them into a cardboard box. I didn't want to damage that beautiful pomegranate. With such flexable branches it was easy to shake them. I also didn't have my veil so I went for the quick option."

"Got them in a hive. Great sized swarm. Wish I had thought to take a picture. They had started building comb on the leaves so there will probably be some foragers clustered there tonight. Might want to donate them to one of your other hives. Thanks…"

Experienced Topbar Beek Available for Lesson?

Hi Beeks,I need some help with topbar hive maintenance. I have a new hive that is super productive with honey and brood.

I use the following type of bee hives:
