Check out what we got to do yesterday evening! Audree is 8 and this is her first year beekeeping. It was a 1st swarm for both of us as well (and I have been at it since 2007). I told her that she was my good luck charm. I caught the queen and hived the swarm. It was HUGE. Covered 8-10 deep frames. The queen did fly off when I hived it, but it was late (7:45pm) and the bees were fanning at the hive entrance, so my hope is that she simply returned (I did stay put for several minutes in case she was orienting to me.) I will check today to see if they stayed. I hope the did, of course, but if they didn't - daughter and I still had a heck of a day!
