Anatomy of a Swarm: A New Hive Begins

How to catch a swarm of bees

I know, I know. It's turning into a beekeeping blog. I promise, there's a lot of Treehousing to be done here in a bit. But the bees have been so darned interesting lately ...

Today, the swarm that had been threatening at our hive finally happened. It's a pretty amazing thing to watch -- and in the end, we had a friend over who collected a bucket o' bees to start a new hive on his property.

The wonderful part is, of course, our bees in the hive are doing great -- so great they needed to expand their operations, so to speak.

How do you catch a swarm? Here's how it's done.
