Rescued from a garden pot

Have you ever wondered how a colony of bees is rescued from a garden pot? 🪴

Cutting out a beehive is a delicate process that requires careful consideration with a lot of steps involved.

The critical phase is carefully cutting wax comb sections away to transfer them into frames that can be transported into a new beehive box while taking extra caution not to harm the queen or crush bees and brood in the process.

It is messy and sticky, especially when nectar flows out of the wax cells. Once the bees are all in the new box, they need to be monitored closely to ensure that they are adjusting well and the colony is healthy and thriving.

The effort to rescue a beehive is undeniably worthwhile, as it not only safeguards a crucial component of our ecosystem but also supports the well-being of these essential pollinators.
