Last night and this morning I moved my bees from the apple orchard back to my main apiary. I knew it was going to be difficult before I even got there as I was running late before I even got to the orchard. That of course led me to have a lead foot to try to buy a few more minutes to load them before it got dark, which led to being pulled over for speeding. Thankfully the very nice officer let me off with a verbal warning to slow down. Anyway I got there right around dusk, and it's cold (around 45 degrees) and cloudy and just starting to spit rain. So I get the first pallet loaded ok, without the bees getting too mad, but then I see this swarm hanging nearby (I'll post pics in a couple of hours). So now I'm in a pickle because I didn't bring any extra boxes, bottom boards or top covers. Thankfully another hive had swarmed about two weeks earlier and I had messed up when I caught the other swarm and ended up having to put them on three boxes instead of just two so when I loaded up the other swarm colony I saw that they weren't using the bottom box. Ok one problem solved I've got a box with frames and drawn comb. But I still don't have a bottom board or top cover.
