The Looking for the Rest

I found the best place for the beekeeper's holiday. The bees do not live there.

Photos: Sloup-Sosuvka Caves, Moravian Karst. Please, do not copy photos.

The Makeing Nucs

We are makeing nucs with my parents in the Visocina Bee Yard.

The Swarming

My father Jan Urban corrects the entrance of the swarm catcher. The empty hive is located about 200 m from the bee yard.
