I detached the empty hive, as there are no more swarms to expect this year.

The still empty hive was brought to a new place and package bees from a local beekeeper were put into it. Red queen from 2018. Candi (1 kg) was placed on the bootom of the hive.

The hive is exposed to full sun in the afternoon of a hot day. Bees are clustering around the hive entrance. Bees also ventilate on the outer wall of the hive.

Bees are clustering outside the the hive in the late afternoon of a hot day at 36 °C.
The hive gets sun in the afternoon.

An Asian hornet was flying away with a bee it had captures just before I arrived.
There is an European honet beneath the hive at the beginning of the video, as well as some flies.
