    West Virginia---have an extremely small swarm hanging in one of my apple trees. A queen and about 20-25 bees. They've been there for 3 days. Too small, too late...

    Picked up a football sized swarm on a DC-3 at work (Long Beach, Ca) . Put them in a spare medium box with half a comb of honey and wished them luck. Sadly, I don't have a spare frame of brood to give them as my other hive seems mostly honey bound and slow to build fresh comb.

    One of my hives swarmed on October 2nd here in Nova Scotia Canada. I don't know what they were thinking.

    I checked my hives in Stuart, Va, today (1/13) and they are bringing in lots of yellow pollen. They have been collecting it long enough to have packed into wallet sized areas of brood comb. They are also bringing in a green pollen. I don't know the source of either of the pollens.

    Swarm crossed my backyard today, feb 9, 2013. I heard them from inside. They look to be setting up housekeeping in a large oak across street. I have put out a storm trap.

    Came down from NY to make early splits and found a 4 pound swarm 15 feet up on a tree branch. Used a 10 foot length of pipe and a cardboard box taped to the pipe to retrieve the swarm. My first of the year, and hopefully not the last.
