    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...

    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.

    April 03, Verona NC, zip 28540...beautiful sunny day, 68-70 F.Medium size swarm, started swarming as we watched the hive, talking about bees......buzzing and creating a cloud of bees, they've got up into an old maple tree around some mistletoe, aprox 25 feet up...tough to get to. The owner got to it with a bucket/pole combo, and was able to shake maybe a quarter of the bees. Too many branhes in the way...Placed them in a nuc with a few drawn frames, and as we watched, in less than 20 minutes the rest of the bees started to fly from up the maple tree into the nuc box...Amazing stuff
