    Had a swarm from one of my hives this afternoon, caught and put them in a 5 frame nuc.
    Never had one this late in the year.
    Guess its global swarming or something.

    My dad caught a swarm for me this morning from one of my highly productive aggressive hives. Interesting part is that when I checked the nuc when I got home it had two virgin queens and a cluster the size of a baseball in the tree. Went to a school function and when I came back the swarm in the tree was the size of a football. I separated the virgin nuc and recaptured the swarm in a new nuc. Learning, learning, learning.

    I am in Troy, Missouri and have picked up swarms on the following dates:

    29 May 2010 - Medium
    5 May 2010 - Large
    10 May 2010 - Very Large
    18 May 2010 - Large
    18 May 2010 - small

    I have been lucky so far. All of these have stayed in the hive and are going to town building comb. We have been having a lot of rain. It has been raining for several days in a row. I have been getting calls on the first sunny day after a rainy spell. The best one was on the 18th of May. The swarm was hanging off a limb not even 3' off the ground. I held a bucket under them and brushed them off the limb into the bucket with my bee brush. So far there was only one that was high off the ground. It was about 15'. Got to LOVE IT!

    I just got back in the door after picking up another swarm. It was a small swarm on the seat of a riding mower. The owner said that the bees landed on his leg while he was cutting grass. He said he stopped, stood up, and stomped he foot on the ground. The bees fell off. Some flew off. Then they refromed on the seat. He left them and went in the house. He called me today beause they were still there. It is raining today and he was worried about them getting wet. So I picked them up and will give them a nice dry new place to live.

    Caught my first swarm of the season the morning of 5/22/10. Got the call and they were on the head of a practice calf roping dummy in their backyard about 2-3 feet off the ground. Just swept them into the box about 2# of bees.
