Dsnaproll invited me up to his place in Virginia. Jacobs and I arrived about 3:00 PM yesterday. He had said he wanted to reduce his hive count, so I went to pick up 4 hives. While I was driving up there, he caught a swarm. We loaded 3 hives into my boxes and made a split from a 4th hive, with me taking one half of the split. That effectively reduced his number of hives, after the swarm he had caught, by two. Then before leaving yesterday evening, we caught two more swarms in his yard. So, when we left, he still had the same number of hives he had yesterday morning before we got there. 5 hours of playing in the bees and great conversation about everything under the sun, made for a very interesting and enjoyable day. Plus, there's 4 more hives in my yard.Couldn't ask for any more than that.
