    Another swarm on the 6th of July. This must be a hot spot as this is the third swarm this year within about 20' of each other all with different placements.http://s1055.photobucket.com/albums/...t%3Dimage9.jpg

    Hey Henry, did you notice that's your nuc box you let me borrow? If they stay in it I'm thinking about bringing them back to you to return the favor. Thanks again. Steve

    Saturday, July 7th, 12:05 PM, a small swarm, approaching from the N.E., landed in a stack of supers(with comb) in the drive way that we had painted. There was some indecision as to which stack was best, and as of night fall, the vote was not unanimous.

    Thanks for the update!!! I was thinking that my 5 framers were too small. It seems that a 10 frame deep is a bit too large, so I put some 6 frames out but haven't cought anything in them yet.

    Looked out the window a few minutes ago and there it was, the annual swarm that winds up on the same branch of the same birch tree, about thirty five feet from the ground. No sense trying risking my neck to try to capture it. Weather: Sunny, low pressure, windy. About 76 degrees. July 9th. 12:30 pm.

    Got my first swam call ever on 7/9. Palermo, Maine, warm (80 degrees) and sunny.

    Very tiny swarm, probably an after swarm. About the size of a tennis ball, but I did get a new queen out of it. Added a couple of frames of bees to them and started a nuc. We will see how it does. Very easy swam to get. They were on a fence post about 4 feet off the ground.

    7/11- Caught a small grapefruit sized swarm in my bee yard that is from my second year hive, marked queen and all!! I put them in a hive and added a couple drawn frames and a frame of brood from another colony and a frame of honey/pollen. See what happens!

    I'm a beginner so not sure what I'm looking at but could this be a swarm getting ready to leave or are they just cooling off on this hot night? http://i1052.photobucket.com/albums/...714122112a.jpg

    They are just cooling off from all the heat we had the past few days (mine are doing the same as well).

    I did a cut-out on Sat 7/14, the bees moved higher in the roof than what I could get. (No bee vac at the time. Major bummer!!!) Thought they may have had more comb in the roof, but I was wrong. Sometime Monday or early Tuesday they fled the coop. They didn't even go into the hive that had their comb as w/in 2 days there were SHB that have about taken over. Cut out was off of N. Wawaset Rd. in West Chester, Pa. They swarmed into the pine trees about 50 yards from the original hive because the home owner said that others had noticed a lot of bees flying around that area on Tuesday. They were no where to be seen last night when I got there.
