when i came for lunch today and went to have a quick look at my hives (as i always do)and in front of my eyes the hive which should have had one QC started to swarm. Typical. well luckily enough they settled in nearby bush with in 20 min and i managed shake them in my nuce box. But just when i got most of them in, one huge bee landed on my arm. it was a bl...dy queen! I manage to get her nicely in from front entrance of the nuce box and after half an hour all the bees were nicely inside as well. adventure..
