We had 2 hives now we have 3.

WP_20130601_003One to many queens in the hive can cause one queen to leave with most of the workers following behind, this is called swarming.  Fortunately for me they settled down in my blackberry patch and after putting on my bee suit, I was able to capture the swarming hive and gave them a new home to make honey in.  I was really careful!!
