    Got a large swarm from my brothers hive on March 21st, he had been feeding them and adding some frames but missed the queen cells.

    Got another swarm today, not big one but enough to start. Came from a house that has a hive in it we are going to trap out. My cousin came down to check his hives and found two swarms, was only able to get one, the other was already leaving when he found it, both were from his hives.

    Have two hives that are ready to swarm.

    Clear and sunny with a cooling wind, rained the day before.

    Called the day before and swarm was at callers mothers' yard about six feet up. Was able to get to them about sunset and they were clustered.

    Was informed by caller and mother they had been there about five days. Man were they hungry.

    First swarm of the year that we have seen. A 37 year experienced beek said he has never seen them this early.

    2 to 3 lbs swarm moved into a trap on my porch. We had several days of rain before the sunny day the swarm came.

    Swarm moved into a bait box on my front porch. Not sure how big yet because I haven't opened it up. Box has only been there a few days. This is the second swarm I've caught off the porch. There must be an unmaintained hive nearby, as all my hives are new this year and not showing any signs of swarming.

    Got a call about a swarm that had moved into a drainage pipe at a school. I don't have a bee vac and I think that is the only way they'll get them out. The pipe runs down behind the brick so there is no way to take it apart and get them out. Not sure what happened to them.
