Another, super calm swarm showed up at Tyler and Laura’s (the site of the original swarmous). We still can’t figure out if either swarm came from their top bar hive, or if bees are just really attracted to their insanely beautiful home/urban farm. I’m guessing the latter.
This swarm was a bit tricky to capture… not as easy as shaking a tree branch into a box. I decided to scoop the bees up with my gloved hands (they felt like a heavy, vibrating blanket) and placed them into a cooler for quick transport to South Circle Farm. The bees probably thought they’d done died and gone to heaven.
Sooooo, If you live in Indy and you see/hear of a swarm, give me a shout out. I’ll make sure they find a nice home.
