    Basketball size swarm in Plainville, Ct. Scooped them up yesterday after I got the call. Home owner said they had been there for a day or 2. Probably swarmed on Tuesday, was really warm that day.
    Got them boxed with a frame of donated brood.

    Southington, Ct. 6/6/2015
    Forgot to post this last week but I had a beautiful swarm fly right into my yard and took up residence in a 2 deep empty hive. Very large swarm and very gentle bees. Not from any of my hives.

    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.

    Saw them swam, watched to where they congregated to. 15 yards from my other hives, 3 feet off the ground on a think limb-

    Saw the first dutch clover today in New Haven. There were no bees working it. Bees are working the hawthorn, bringing in red pollen.

    Hawthorn pollen is yellowish, maybe the red is henbit or horse chestnut.
