Bee farming is ecologically humane and it generates provisions of plant pollinators and an immediate source of honey. Ensnared swarms of feral honeybees can be bought at apiaries. Placing bees in a hive is a speedy operation less than 30 minutes. Afterward settlement, the swam starts conforming combs to nurture a queen brood and for honey production.

Protect yourself from a bee sting with a beekeeper hat, boots, gloves and pastel color attire that shields your skin. Apply duck take around cuffs, ankles, and protect your neck line if you don’t use an extensive beekeeper veil.

Pick up the top hive and withdraw up to 4 frames from the middle of the hive, because it’s where bees will be inserted. Flush the inner hive with sugar water to lure and nourish them. Situate a feeder jar on, or adjacent the hive’s entryway to furnish nutriment for a couple of days.

Disperse the bees beyond the mesh sides of the box with sugar water. The sugar water technique allays bees and prompts them to agglomerate.

Separate the transparent layer of wood swathing the entry atop the bee box. The container of nectar will obstruct the entryway. Withdraw the belt the fastens the queen cage to the top bee box. Leisurely detach the container of nectar and queen trough the entry. If the bees become wayward then drift sugar water on them. Ensure the queen is bee healthy.

Uncover the bee box over the entry at the top hive where the frames were withdrawn. Invert the box and empty the bees in the hive on the first try (solidly shake once). Firmly shake again to jettison any clinging bees.

Situate the bee box on the surface near the hive so bees can conveniently return to the hive.
