So, I saw my first swarm this last weekend. This was a treat because I was told this was a primary swarm, meaning thousands of bees.

We were not sure at first if we got the queen, but by the way they were all rushing into the Nuc, we knew we had her. The great news is I only got stung once. Swarms are calmest during a swarm so with as many bees as there was I’m glad I only was stung once.

Now we are hoping they all stay in their new home and not swarm again.

Beginning a honey bee farm is not as easy as it seems. With anything else, it takes research, knowing the business and best of all, knowing how to get started. It can be overwhelming at times, but I invite you to join me in following my journey as I attempt to grow a hobby into a business.
