Bait Hives

SANY7511 Our bees are doing great. They are very active, flying in and out of their hives. A couple of the fruit trees in our area are starting to bloom, so that should make them happy.

Last week, Abe made three bait hives, which we'll be putting in trees near the river, ready to catch a swarm. It's not yet swarming season, but we want to get them in place early so that we don't miss any opportunities.
