    I just caught another massive swarm today, 5/22/07. The owner said it was on the side of his machine shop. By the time I got there it was in the wall, and boy was there alot of them. Sucked the girls out with my Bee Vac. I had another call today, but by the time the first swarm was secured, the second swarm was gone.

    I had 1 swarm on Saturday the 19th.
    2 swarms on Monday the 21st and
    1 swarm today Wednesday the 23rd.

    I have yet to catch one of them. They are Russian bees that handle the mites well as far as I can see so I hope they make it as feral bees.

    Well my massive swarm from yesterday decided to go into my neighbors cedar tree. They were about 40 feet up, so I climbed up there and cut down the branch only to have them cluster higher. Looks like this one is going to be a feral hive. I even placed a frame of open brood in the deep after I hived them and they still took off.

    I went and got another swarm today, 5/23/07. I am gonna keep this swarm enclosed in a well ventilated nuc for a few days.

    Thought swarming season was over, Stacked a bait that was unsuccessful in the pile, it was filled with Small cell combs that were yellow but had been in a hive that got AFB . Bingo, 5/21 good sized swarm. 94401
    Have lost count on my baits, maybe 15 so far, several very small.
