Raspberry cane swarm

Our final swarm for the year arrived in the same spot as the last. The raspberry canes held them for a few days as the night time temperature dropped to 0 degrees celcius with a heavy frost. Their hive will be reviewed this weekend. Lately they have shown their anger in to any intrusion but that could be because of the heavy skunk population that has been present at the entrance eating many bees at night.

Last swarm for 2014
