Nowton Apiary Meeting Sunday 22nd May – Colleting a Swarm
This meeting is aimed at beginners, with or without bees, and experienced beekeepers .
We have looked at trying to prevent our bees from swarming but how do we deal with a swarm when it all goes wrong?
As beekeepers we have a responsibility to collect our own, or other beekeepers swarms. The public expect us to be the experts when we arrive to collect a swarm, so be prepared.
Come along to see how to deal with the public, the equipment needed, avoiding risks, and how to make swarm collecting easy. We will go on to hive the swarm in the apiary.
