The bees were a lot LESS aggressive than last year and the hives looked great: The three established hives all produce around 20 frames (Farrars) each and the three new hives (the swarms we managed to catch) have healthy queens and plenty of brood. We will take them to Pojo and install them in Rosendal out of the wind and close to the cleared forest which is now covered in raspberry.
After we finished Peter asked me to clear the weeds in front of the hives which is safer to do in a beesuit. I was so confident the bees wouldn't bother me I actually removed my gloves because they were three sizes too big. And I got stung. But only once and it was really no big deal. My own silly fault.
