    4-28-09 swarm high up in neighbor's tree.
    5-1-09 two swarms moved into bait hives.
    Don't think you are on the right road simply because it is a well worn pathway.

    Swarm caught yesterday 3/29 came out of one of my hives. Was walking to it to split it.
    Weather has been in the mid 60's to low 70's night time temps have bee in the low 40's to upper 40's.
    We have a fair amount of floral now.
    They went onto a limb on a large hedge bush not in the swarm traps I have around.

    Cool Re: Please Post your Swarm Dates?

    Well I caught another swarm today not sure if it was one of my hives or a wild feral. I am starting to get pretty good at catching them but maybe not so good at preventing them, if it was one of mine. I will see in about a week when I inspect the hives. Southwest Mississippi and things are beginning to warm up.

    Location: Carson, Mississippi
    Weather: Clear blue skies, Low 90's
    Date: Friday July 9th
    Type Of Bees: Cordovan
    Origin of swarm: Moving my hive off some old uneven concrete blocks to some new ones when it tipped over (no major/minor damage, just upset bees)
    I went out a few hours later to check on the hive when my son noted a golf ball size swarm of bees in the old concrete block.
    The next day I went out and noted the golf ball size swarm was now completely covering the bottom hole of the block
    http://images.lowes.com/product/820779/820779802304.jpg

    The bees stayed in the block all night and did not moved even after a hard rain that night guarding the new queen.
    That night I put together a new super deep hive (10 frame but using 9)
    and this morning my son picked up the block and shock it into the new hive.

    Will post pics of the hive next week.
