This one one well behaved big mama of a swarm and a textbook perfect swarm catch! One of the hives at Erda Gardens swarmed. I was already planning on going to the farm to help with splitting some hives so the timing couldn't be better. We positioned the hive body as close to the swarm as possible on a stack of tables and saw horses, had a few beats of peace and gave the plum branch a good hard shake! Into the hive the bees fell. We closed it up and thees started fanning to their sisters to come home! What a great rush... Enjoy your Erda Garden's Home and make loads of honey to share with the CSA members.
