Glad you bring that up.

So that swarm settled at a friend of mine's front door on a Saturday afternoon. Thankfully there was a father/son team in his estate that have worked with bees before and they brought over a box, relocated the queen and swarm and all was well.

We showed up for a braai the next day (Sunday), which is where I got in on the story, and at some time during the day the son of the beekeeper team came over to check up on how things was and all was still good.

Unfortunately an hour later, with the kids in the pool, these bees vacated their new home and the yard was full of bees. We closed all doors and windows and after 30 minutes they all settled in the tree which is when I took that picture.

We never saw them again and an hour later there was no sign of them in the tree. They must have moved on.

Sadly the beekeeper said this is a bit too late in the year for such a small hive to still be migrating and he does not see them making it through the winter.

Still fascinating.
