Hi my name is Mireille and I live in the Vale of Evesham. I became interested in Honeybees when a feral swarm moved into my front porch four years ago. Sadly it died out after a couple of years and I missed all their comings and goings. So I started bee keeping last year with one Langstroth hive and a feral swarm from a local farmers orchard. The hive caught me unawares this year when it swarmed at the end of March. Luckily I caught the swarm and then another a month later from a feral colony that lives in a neighbour chimney. So I am up to 3 hives now.
A swarm in March would certainly catch out most beekeepers!
