I detached the empty hive, as there are no more swarms to expect this year.
There were some kind of garbage and small animals underneath the metal roof, especially on the tree side.

Hive 05 has been ignored by a swarm resting just 5 meters away.

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.
