Today I went along to the Mid Month Auckland Bee Club meeting, the discussion was based on swarms, which was run by Dennis a very experienced bee-keeper.
These mid monthly meetings are more about getting together with like-minded people, that also love bees.
On my way home I went around to Franks house to check out a swarm he had retrieved, the bees were very strong indeed. Franks house has a great view of the sea and I’m sure his bees must love the location. We will be picking up our new bees tomorrow night :).
