Sorry I have not been keeping up 1st time I have logged in since last fall.
False swarm, I pulled 2 splits and split 2 others that looked pretty full. August 27, 2013 West Point CA 95255.
I pick up a nice 4 lb one out of a pine tree this morning Toledo oh
Called for a swarm in Livermore, CA at 4:30 PM on 5/8/13. Called a buddy up that lived about a mile away from the location and gave him the swarm call. He said it was a nice swarm about 2' off the ground on a branch, shake and bake and was out in 25 minutes.
Got another call of a swarm moving into a wall on 5/6/13, I declined as I dont do removals. That was Tracy, CA.
Got yet another call on 5/9/13 at 9 AM that a swarm moved into a cable box the day before in Tracy, CA. Will pick that one up either this evening or tomorrow morning.

You do what you gotta do.... After waiting for the "starter's pistol" for a couple of weeks and taking two calls yesterday about potential cutouts, I got a call from a guy who called me last year (where his swarm only hung out for an hour or so). This one, about 8' up in a cedar tree.... 4# or so, waited for me. I just transferred them into a top bar where I lost a colony over the winter. A little "pissy" but was drizzling yesterday and this morning. Elizaville, NY 12523.

Before a bee stings, it will be sure to let you know that it will hurt them more than it will hurt you.
