    Watched my backyard hive swarm, land 40ft up, then move into a trap 2 days later. I know most people prefer to prevent swarming, but it was pretty epic to watch the entire cycle from start to finish. Glad I was home.

    4 calls in the last two days. One had already taken up residence in a house, one flew off before I could get there and 2 I passed on to other beeks due to time constraints.

    I had two swarm calls yesterday. One was gone by the time I got to it, the other took up residence in the wall of a house. I had to pass because I didn't want to do the carpentry involved. I'm in south central Ohio about halfway between Columbus and Cincy.

    Trying to do swarm control, but have found capped queen cells, so they would swarm in about 7 days. Mid West Colorado.
    Before a bee stings, it will be sure to let you know that it will hurt them more than it will hurt you.

    Out of twelve, two decided to abscond today. Bugga. The other 10 are going strong though. Hope they keep going strong. I guess your bound to lose some. Just try and try again.

    Yes. The commercial guy has his hives in the sagebrush about 100 yards off the farm ground. I just park on the road and walk through the brush and find them.

    "Heeezzzzzz here...."

    That's what they must have said -- I showed up at a house to scope a soffit trapout and as I was speaking to the folks, the colony swarmed. I quickly put a dab of LGO on a small branch and within seconds, they formed a cluster 2-3 feet away and higher. Don't know whether that's a coinsidence or not but I did not care. Went home, got my gear and now, all the girls are in a deep -- they almost filled it! (Waiting for all the scouts and stragglers to come home, I will go back and get them in the dark tonight.)

    Amazing... got home from hiving one swarm and just settling down and got a call from 4 miles away for a 4-pounder 6' off the ground in a bushy little fir tree. Into the catcher box and back home in an hour. Into a hive tomorrow after I set up some frames.

    Observation hive swarmed at 15:45. Not happy and friendly either! Put my veil on and went to get some footage and took a dart to each arm. I will hive them later after they settle down. In full protection too LAWL!
