    Default March Swarms

    I have pics of a big swarm hanging in an almond tree. How do I post it?

    That's the biggest swarm I've ever seen. Thanks for posting it.

    Thanks for posting the pics Andrew. Those are almond petals on the ground it was about 80 degrees when that pic was taken.
    The bees did very well in the almonds this year but it is over now and time to move on.

    Great pictures Nick. You failed to mention though if you managed to gather it up. Most of the swarms that I see around here are about 1/4 that size.

    I would think that it is several swarms gathered in one place.

    I wonder how many swarms it would take to make one that big and how many queens would bee in there?

    What do you think?

    We didn't catch it. Didn't try. It probably was more than one swarm. You would have needed several deeps to put it in and when we got to that side of the orchard we were out of boxes.
    It is now part of the feral bee population in central California.

    Wow, what a swarm...I have never seen one half that size. Thanks so much for sharing that picture. Do you think it is possible that it is maybe two swarms one on top of the other...
    Amazing
