Saving a tiny swarm


LA Backwards Beekeeper Yvonne writes:

Stacy from Windsor Hills called the Bee Rescue Hotline to remove a swarm from a tree in time for a 3-year old's birthday party. The swarm, located in a crabapple tree, was one of the smallest ones I've seen!


Stacy's son Torin gave me a hand in sweeping them into a shoebox. We put the shoebox in the tree to allow the stragglers to join their queen.
