Nine days has passed since I made my first walk away split. Check the new hive out as I crack it open and look for a queen cell.

The easiest - and cheapest - way to start beekeeping is with a swarm. If you can persuade a swarm to move into a hive of its own accord, that saves some work and possibly some tree-climbing.

A box of 30-40 litres capacity is about right, with some clean comb inside as bait. If you have no comb, a couple of drops of citronella or lemongrass essential oil will often do the trick, as it mimics the scent of the queen's pheromone.

This is a short (18") top bar hive that works well as a bait hive. It has the same profile as my other top bar hives, making it easy to transfer bees into a full-size box when needed. You can keep bees in a box this size if you don't mind them throwing swarms more often than they might in a bigger box.

The shallow box on top is an experimental super, which uses two rows of top bars spaced up to 50mm apart. It doubles up as a place to feed fondant if required in winter. Access for feeding is via a slot in one of the lower set of bars; it would need more open access for use as a super.

Naturalist (and artist) John Walters was looking for a hornet rove beetle (which live in hornet nests), so we decided to dismantle the nest that had been built inside one of my top bar hives. We thought that all the residents were dead. We were wrong...

I started raising bees this year. I'm learning a ton but I'm no expert. As a livestock guy I couldn't be happier to be adding bees onto my farm.
