Preparing the Apiary

Getting hives ready, two to be baited with honey in the hope of luring the first spring swarms when May arrives. A Nice neat line in the spring evening sun. 

I can't wait to go and catch some swarms if the occasion presents although I expect that the theory, of climbing a ladder to manhandle a swarm into a box, and the reality, when I find myself tottering up a tree with a pair of branch loppers in a bee suit after work, may present a steep learning curve.
