So last week, Robie and I vacuumed up the bees in our porch column. We locked them inside a hive with a bunch of their honeycomb for a couple days in and effort to reset their sense of home. This morning, I put their hive on top of our existing hive with a double screen board. Since I’m pretty sure the queen from the column didn’t make it, they will want to integrate with the old hive. The purpose of the double screen board is to expose the two hives to each other without letting them massacre each other. After a couple days or a week, we’ll remove the double board and let them merge.

Either way, our hive is kinda tall now.
