Thank you to Linda for hosting our first group swarm capture! It definitely took multiple people to grab from the apple tree — mentally and physically we used our creative brain power to work with what was available. We look forward to updates on its well-being.
We talked about the following:
- J-hook hive tool: leverage against neighboring top bars (watch the first 20 seconds of this video https://youtu.be/1ULOAS_dFa4)
- Flow hives (Be sure to come to our August 2021 meeting to see one in person)
- Swarm boxes and drawn comb for swarm captures
