Bees in Idaho: a beekeeper’s first swarm
Your first swarm is soooo exciting! Ken Rhodes of Idaho Falls built a little platform for his swarm trap in the crotch of a large tree. Then, while he was at work, his very first swarm moved in. Ken’s son, Jeffrey, was lucky enough to witness move-in day and caught the action on his cell phone.
I love the fact that this gorgeous tree is in town, right next to the street. Good job! Thanks to you both for some great photos.
