Palos Verdes 4-H rescues a swarm

Dee, who leads an incredible group of young beekeepers in the Palos Verdes 4-H club, got a call from someone who heard that she rescues bees. She was able to get her adventurous group of young ladies together before the sun set. They had them rescued and back to her to hive in no time.



She put them in a hive where we found a colony that hadn't survived the winter. When we had inspected the hive a couple of weeks ago and found a handful of dead bees clumped in the middle of the hive with no honey stores. The new bees were dearly needed. It sounds like they really like their home as they are flying in and out a couple days later.
