Nice little swarm of bees in San Carlos yesterday – first call of the year. The bees were collected and housed by a fellow beekeeper.

The girls are super busy this week with the temps in the 70s here in the Bay Area.

My guess is that this late season rescue will be the last one of the year. These bees made their home in a water meter box but needed to go so a live removal was performed and everyone will get to live happily ever after in Woodside making honey.
This was a very strong colony that had somehow survived years of neglect – most likely not the original bees, but subsequent swarms that had moved in and set up shop. Even for late September the bees were extremely docile and working with them was a pleasure. Hopefully they will be happy in their new home with their new caretakers.
