    Another swarm on the 6th of July. This must be a hot spot as this is the third swarm this year within about 20' of each other all with different placements.http://s1055.photobucket.com/albums/...t%3Dimage9.jpg

    I forgot about posting swarm dates here. My very first swarm was Apr 3, 2013 around 1:30ish near Greer, SC 29651. I'm not sure if these were my bees or not. My husband was on the back deck when the back yard got thick with bees. He seems to thing they are stranger bees, attracted to the boxes we had just split a week before. I was at the grocery store getting deli ham when he called me and said, Ah, I think your bees are swarming. I said, Naw! I split them so they wouldn't. Anyway, it was exciting. By the time I got home, they had landed in the dogwood in front of the hives. I made a video and put it on FB. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151468418787900

    Hi Maine Beekeeper, I'm in S.C. and caught a huge swarm today in the backyard. So glad to get it as one of mine swarmed about a month ago. Blessings.

    Default South Carolina

    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.

    Caught a swarm in Pendleton, 15 feet up in the air. Just before I got there it moved up from a lawn chair to make it a lot harder. Got a call from the extension office.
