Finding queens is not my easiest task, maybe you swarm chasers could give me a tip.

In fifteen swarms caught, I have only seen the queen once. My question is, where do you usualy find the queen in a swarm?

The one time I saw her it was on a swarm that had parked on a four inch post about eighteen inches tall. She was on top of the post in the open, no bees were touching her.

Where is the best place to start looking, and what are the signs?
