Braddock Feral Hive Extraction III

Christina Neumann cuts comb from the wooden board onto which the bees built comb.

Alex Grelli looks over his handiwork. The comb with brood was cut and secured in frames with rubber bands. The bees will build these odds and ends out to fill the frame.

The nine frames of brood comb and honey extracted will be requeened to form three new hives. These hives will be placed in Burgh Bees' apiaries around town and the Burgh Bees Class of 2009 will be watching the colonies develop!
