Took a young scout and his dad into the apiary today to give them their first bee keeping experience, got them veiled , lit the smoker etc As we walked up a saw a very small ( maybe 30-50 bees) ball on the ground in the grass.... Not normal so poked around with my finger ... Yep nice looking queen.....so hoofed back to the house to get my bee box ( another story why it was at the house) where my queen clip was. Got back in time to catch her, just seconds before all the bees started taking flight out the hive..... Soon we had 5-6000 bees flying and the queen in my hand..... Great sound too, even the neighbors wondered about it. Took about 10 minutes to settle down, during that time I brought out a nuc, pulled two honey frames, and fetched two drawn frames, and put the queen in her clip into the nuc and placed it on the ground where we found her. Some bees went into the nuc, others returned to the original hive..... Very cool experience for the newbies, and during all of this I was in short sleeves and short pants and sandals like normal, not a sting.... Happened so quickly that I took no pics but Alex did so will get them later.
