The Bee Rescue Hotline got a call about a swarm in Carson. Perfect spot since I needed to pick up the door handles and dividers for our Ikea kitchen. It was 5 minutes from Ikea and Dennis was meeting us from Lawndale.
So after waiting an hour and a half for drawer dividers to be pulled we decided to just leave and get the swarm real fast. When we got there, Dennis had already had everything set up and had trimmed the bush where the swarm was hanging out.
Erin, Patty, Nancy and Ron watched from their van parked in the driveway and got an up close look at Dennis shaking the bees into the nuc.
This swarm was picked up the next day by another Backwards Beekeeper.
