    Default The one that got away



    They were wraped around this pine tree so shaking into the box was out. I didn't have a sprayer or sugar water with me so I could not spray them and shake them onto the ground. I did have my bee vac and a power outlet so I decided to vacuum them up, but they did not like that Idea and took off. I ended up with 500 or so and no queen. Maybe I will get called back again tomorrow

    Doesn't that just tick you off....you try your hardest and the buggers just do what they want, not what you want! Nice looking swarm...

    It was pretty cool experience even though I did not get them. I had just put the hose up to the bottom of the swarm and the whole swarm just disapated. The home owner was standing at the base of the tree and when I looked down he was gone......So I am standing there looking around wondering what happend when the home owner comes back from the house and wants to know if they stung me?
