Barham Swarm – Update 2

Looking good today – I just briefly lifted the lid to check the state of things. The bees are bundled nicely in the same spot and have taken most of the syrup I left for them. I suspect that they are now drawing out comb and will need to get in soon to make sure the natural comb they are making is aligned with the top bars.

One of the hazards of top bar hives is that the bees make their comb in any old orientation – the bee keeper needs to intervene early to make sure they start off well aligned.
