Tommy gets some training in re-homing bee swarms and feral beehives.
It’s been a busy summer for swarm and hive removals and we’ve got plenty of video to post over the coming weeks. Here Ian is teaching our warehouse hand Tommy how to move a swarm (this one was right outside our warehouse, how convenient!) and how to break up and re-home a feral hive into one of our NZ pine beehives.
The bush beehive featured second is a beauty, with swirling honey comb and a lot of healthy bees. But Tommy had his work cut out for him breaking it down and getting it into frames! All in a days work.
