    Zip 28574, USDA zone 8...about 6 PM, 70 F, got a call from a friend...large swarm landed under the kids swing set. A nice, thick blanket of bees laying on the ground. Placed a nuc, 5 F deep with some nice comb in it, and they started marching right in...had to add the second 5 F deep on top to accommodate them with more space.

    4-3-13 95640 (Lodi, Ca) gotta call for approx 4 lbs of bees in a tree that were "high enough that you could stand on the tail gate of your truck an reach them." Only if I drove Bigfoot! Thankfully they had a forklift and a platform to stand on. Easy grab after that.

    4-5-13 95632 (Galt) Another school grab. Maybe they heard the school was having a spelling bee? Perhaps it was the fact that this school's mascot is a bee and they are called the Stingers? Either way, it was nice that a cross town school still had my card from last year and gave them my phone number as it resulted in a solid 4 pounds of bees about 15 ft in the air, now safely hived outside of the city limits.

    Caught 2 swarms at 36272 Piedmont, Ala. One the first weekend in March and the second the last weekend in March. The first swarm weighed about 6 to 7 lbs. The last about 5 lbs. Both swarms are working real well.

    Got my first swarm call of the year yesterday April 5th. In Prairie Grove AR I am guessing zone 6b as that is what zone I am in 45 min. away. The bees had landed on a sapling the day before and stayed there through what will hopefully be our last frost for the season and probably half of them froze.

    One of my hives swarmed today (4/6) in Maryland 20910, zone 7. 2pm, weather around 60 degrees and sunny. I was out in the yard and thought it was an orientation flight at first. They landed on a nearby tree and have been up there for a few hours.

    90807 Long Beach California (SoCal)

    Large swarm, about 18" long dangling from a branch at about 15'. First attempt with a cardboard box on a stick then transferring them to hive box failed. Came back, tried again and succeeded with a few less bees.

    Learned a few things. These were by far and away the most unpleasant bees I've even experienced. If they don't calm down I'm sure to introduce them to some Dawn Dish soap. These girls were down right violent. I stupidly didn't put on pants for round 1, and got stung 5 times on my ankles. That sucks a lot now.

    A simple post of your location, weather, origin of swarm if known, and date would be great.

    First swarm call ever. In Springfield Mo. I was not ready, so I had to go borrow a new supper from a friend and drive 1/2 hr to receive another call just as we locate the street that they took off. No sign other than a few stragglers clinging to the tree. (Mostly drones.)
    I will be loading the cars in the morning.
