    Received a call on a swarm June 2. The bees had quickly moved in to the underside of a 2nd story deck. Size of a basketball.

    Had another swarm today of Russian bees and was not quick enough to catch them before they left my yard.

    I picked up a good sized swarm yesterday in Edina, MN. Edina is on the south west side of Minneapolis (6/11/07). The Swarm was good size, bit bigger than a basket ball. Homeowner got my info off of the beesource website.

    Weather was the first hot/humid day of the year. Mostly sunny.

    A late good one 6/15 -95030. This was from a bait swarm I caught on 3/11, it had partially filled a deep, partially filled half a medium honey super, had an empty above that. Only had two queen cells. Now there's a crummy strain of bees if you ask me. Two gardeners who had never worked bees caught it from a 15' high tree limb into a cardboard box following my instructions over the phone. Let's hear if for the Bob and Salvo, the heroic bee luvin' gardeners of Monte Sereno.

    Lesson learned,

    Tuesday, 6-12, went and took down an owl house a gentleman had built and placed about 15' in a tree, he said the bees had been there about a week. Gently took it down and put it in the back of my truck, was going to take them out Wed. When I opened it up the next day, i found that the comb had fallen crushing many of the bees. I couldn't find the queen, but I gave them a frame of brood, and will check them next week. If I can't find eggs, I'll pull the queen cells and combine them with a weaker colony.

    3 swarms on April 21st. Liberty Hill, Texas 78642. These were from my hives. Evidently I'm sufffering from the opposite of CCD - Would that be Colony Expand Disorder? I managed to hive two of these three.
