    Today 4/16 two swarms by my bees but I think they were from some commercial pollinators nearby.

    Around 4/10 and 4/11 in Medford, OR, a beek caught a couple swarms. We have one of them now in our first hive (a TBH). I'm guessing 3lbs or more of bees. I think the other swarm was a bit smaller from what he said.

    Bad news=two hives swarmed within the last week. good news is I came home after finding this out and saw a massive swarm had taken up residency in one of my swarm traps.. It was an older one that I put out 2 years ago. Once I saw them I got a 10 frame deep and put them in it with a brood frame. I put 6 drawn frames and 4 undrawn plus a medium on undrawn so I could get them to use their wax building abilities to get me some more drawn comb for the hives I am trying to get honey from.

    came home from work to find a small swarm in one of my traps, possibly a supercedure swarm from one of my hives. this is the first one i am aware of in my area.

    Squarepeg, What is a supercedure swarm? This is the first time I have head of that. Or at least the first time it registered what I was reading. I did not know that swarming might be associated with supercedure. Do they cast something like after swarms with the excess queens?

    4/19/2013- Tracy, CA: Got called for a swarm about 1:00 PM. Showed up and the poor guy was having a garage sale when the 5# swarm decided to land in a close by pine tree about 7' up. I shook the swarm into a box, left it on the ground for about 15 minutes and kept shaking the branch as some bees gathered. After the 15 minutes I decided to call it as very few bees were gathering on the branch, probably foragers/scouts. Coaxed the rest of the bees into the entrance of the swarm catcher, tacked on a piece of hardware cloth and rolled out to the bee trailer and transferred the swarm into a double deep nuc with a frame of brood. They will need to draw out the other 9 foundationless frames on their own! Will transfer them into a 10 frame deep in a couple weeks or less.

    Had a nice one move in 4-10-13, makes it easy when they fly into used boxes.

    Swarm from a colony I will be doing a cut out on in the next week. Another beekeeper set up a trap and managed to catch the swarm. I am glad to be rid of the additional bees. I have no need and really no room for another hive. I hope to cut this colony out and pass it on to another beekeeper.
