    Saw my first swarm last Thursday, March 17. I put up 3 swarm boxes the week before. Today, March 21, I checked the boxes and it appears that I actually have 3 swarms. There is a commercial beekeeper right down the road. Nothing like free bees!

    Had a 2nd swarm from the same box which swarmed on Saturday. They started swarming as I was working on another box. Good timing...

    I caught four of my own swarms first of this week and finally caught a swarm from somewhere else yesterday. A nice sized swarm about as big as a volley ball. 32205

    Woohoo! Captured my first swarm of the season yesterday 3/25 in Houston at the airport. It was a big one. I placed them in a 5 frame nuc with a frame that had fresh eggs, honey and pollen and 4 empty frames. We'll see if they stick around-

    They did not like the neighborhood. Packed up and left March 26 about 5pm. I had a trap baited with a lure, they never even looked at it. As someome said, bees will be bees.

    Got a call from city police about a swarm yesterday. Very easy to get but got one caught in my short glove...I got stung and it died. The swarm was my largest since becoming a bee person. Nice!

    Had a 2 super hive with frames only in top box and used lemon grass oil as lure. Hive set up in front yard. Large swarm darkened the sky as they came in and landed on the hive and proceeded to move in.

    I had 2 swarm from my hives in northeast Ga. I found one large swarm in wild cherry tree 20 feet from swarm trap. I was able to capture and box them before they used the trap. They were checking it out heavily. After another 2 hrs of working in bee yard,made 2 splits and pinched 1 poor queen. As i was leaving i looked at swarm trap and saw several hundred bees flying around. I thought they were from the previous swarm . I continued to watch and sure enough another swarm had moved into the trap. I worked in 2 hives and found 10 to 20 queen cells. I have five more to work today. The season is going strong here.
