Hiving Honeybees

Occurred on May 30, 2019 / Irrigon, Oregon, USA

Info from Licensor: "This video is of hiving a swarm in my backyard. I believe the bees were from my hives but wasn't certain. I proceeded to rehive the bees in a new hive super. I was attempting to shake the bees out of the tree, which was about 8 or 9 feet above, the hive super I had prepared on the ground. After I shook the tree each time, I waited to see if the bees were going to cluster back on the branch above or move into the hive, which would indicate I had successfully gotten the queen in the hive super. AS you can see by the final video the bees were all 'marching' into the hive, indicating the queen was in the hive super."
