    Caught our first swarm of the year today. Nice foot ball size swarm. Swarmed from an oak tree about 50 feet from where they landed on a mailbox post. Nice looking yellow bees look to be Italian.
    1 year 8 hives with more to come in 2014 T

    Caught our second swarm of the season Saturday 3-29-14 South of Laurel, Ms 39440
    Almost 70 degrees with a cold wind blowing, clear skies, we had a 4 inch flood the night before.
    It was a nice big swarm. They landed on the same mailbox post I caught the first of the season on only a week before.

    About a three pound swarm in Barton, Ala on Friday. Guy from work said they had been there for a day and a half. And found out somethin'. If you put frame of brood in the day after hiving a swarm, they're liable to leave on ya'.

    Caught a very large swarm yesterday (3-4-15) about 15 feet up in a live oak tree, out toward the end of the limb. Taped a feed bucket to a long pipe, reached it up under them and bumped the limb they were on and they filled the bucket. Eased them over and down and into a waiting nuc box. Worked a lot better than I expected. Also missed a swarm two days earlier because I didnt have my box and when I returned about 30 min later, they were gone. I am about 15 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. Yesterday it was about 75 degrees, this morning cold and about 20-25 mph wind, heading into upper 20s tonight. My zip is 39574

    Caught a swarm today 3/5/2015. Ocean Springs, MS. Had 3 days of 65+ degrees heat. Today a cold snap moved in, 35F, these bees lucky I saved them in time. Going to be using them on trying out Lauri partial frame technique.

    I got some footage on my GoPro that I'll upload later.

    Was going to look at the hives before going to the store and went out just as a large swarm was leaving the one hive I thought that wouldn't swarm. Got them into a deep. Don't know if the queen got past the excluder to leave with them. Grrr!

    What is needed:


    • zip code, city or county
    • date when the bees swarmed or when you found the swarm.
    • comments - example: if the swarm came from your hive, or if you were called to pick up a swarm, how long was it there. This is not for cutouts unless the bees just took up residence and are not established. It would also be great to include a small photo of the swarm.



    This forum is not for general discussion.

    39090 Central Mississippi. Caught a football-sized swarm in a crape myrtle. Got a call yesterday (5/26/16) from an elderly man about a swarm in a small tree next to the mailbox. Caught and hived the swarm, went back to the location and set out the box I caught them in, along with the branch they had been on. Went back last night and got the rest of them.
