I detached the empty hive, as there are no more swarms to expect this year.
There were some kind of garbage and small animals in the hive (Bombyx disparate).
One european hornet left the hive when I opened it.
Hive mount : the screw of the vertical bar was broken.

A natural medium-sized swarm has been put into this hive.
The hive has been screwed to the tree hive stand as one of the original bolts turned out to be to short.
