Our new colony began swarming whilst I was cutting the grass. A huge swarm collects at the top of a nearby tree and I capture it by cutting off the branch that they were settling on. We then re-hive the colony in a new hive and watch to see if the bees enter. The bees begin fanning at the entrance, a good sign that the queen is there. Over the next 30 minutes the swarm inhabit the hive. The queen bee has deserted the old hive with 1/2 of the colony and we want to set up a new hive.
