Hello there!

Long time since I have been on, but could you please put me down on your swarm list for this year - my small amount of bees didn't survive the winter, and now have two TBH's, so can house two swarms.

Thanks, Pam

So sorry to hear that you have lost your bees Pam.
I didn't notice this posting before I responded to the other one.

We also have 2 hives but only the one weak colony.
We would like another swarm but we are still hoping ours will make it.
If you need any help fetching a swarm please give us a ring (01208872606).
We were very grateful for all your help last year.

Hi,

Add me to the list please. The monster top bar hive is in the top field now. laced with some fine smelling lemongrass oil, but no takers yet.
I'm thinking of making a couple of small trap hives with top bars in them. a sort of mini top bar (mini bar)

Hi Mark,
We have found a mini top bar hive/nucleus or bait hive to be very useful.
We make them so that 8 top bars will fit in. Although no good for actually collecting a swarm in (too heavy), they are great for placing a swarm from a cardboard box in and the bees can stay in there until a new full size hive is made.
