    April 2, 2011: Captured first swarm of the year. In Canyon, TX. Could see that bees were coming and going from a nearby bird house, and that the woodduck-sized hole was nearly sealed up from wax.

    The swarm was 20 high and basketball sized. In Siberian elm. The resident sawed the limb and the bees came slamming to the ground. I placed the cardboard box nuc, there, and they filed in.

    three pound swarm, 20 feet up in the tree. Got to use a pole saw and some rope, retrieved the swarm no problem. It was pretty interesting, I got the majority of the bess in the box and all the sudden the rest of them just marched right on in like little soliders.

    Caught a swarm at IAH airport at 1:00 pm today. They were on a baggage cart. Extremely small cluster - maybe 1000 bees, but I think I got the queen.
