    Caught my first swarm of the year last night. Had about 2# of bees with great temperament today..
    Started them on some sugar water this afternoon and they seem to be really working hard.

    While I did not get the swarm, the owners wanted it, I was called and asked a lot of questions about bees. May 5 2013 Northeastern Ohio.

    I had two swarm calls yesterday. One was gone by the time I got to it, the other took up residence in the wall of a house. I had to pass because I didn't want to do the carpentry involved. I'm in south central Ohio about halfway between Columbus and Cincy.

    Got a call this morning about a swarm. Near London,OH. Swarm had come from wild bees in a nearby tree. It was as easy as it gets to capture. With my hive sitting on the ground the tip of the swarm was about 3 inches about the hive. Then I had to carry the hive all of 6 feet back to my van parked in the driveway. Took 5 minutes at the most.

    While I did not see the swarm, I know I got two. I have bait boxes out and they are active and buzzing.
    I had queen cells and thought I got all of them out but guess I missed some.
