    03226 - (Center Harbor, NH) First swarm of the season mid-day today, regrettably outbound. They laughed at my lemon-scented swarm traps as they headed for the hills.

    My first swarm ever: today 5/19/2013. Oldham County, KY 40077. Had a swarm trap in the crook of a tree and they moved in today. I have no idea if they came from my own hives or not. I'm happy!!

    got my very first swarm call today from a local beekeeper/honey supplier. of course i couldn't drop it all right then and go due to work. went about 1.5 hours later to see if they were still there, and another beek was just coming down out of the tree with a nice package-sized swarm.

    i was honestly glad it was him and not me. the call said 10' up in a tree, but it was more like 25' up in a tree. don't think my ladder would have reached them.
    I'm the dude, so that's what you call me.

    Zip 13210 - Syracuse, NY
    5/18 - Called for a large swarm 12' up in a pine tree. Arrived onsite only 1 hour after swarms arrival, but it had already moved on.
    5/19 - Called about a swarm 15' up on the side of a retail building. Swarm arrived the day before (I suspect the same one as above, as the two spots are less than 1 mile apart.) Got some in the box, but the rest moved on on 5/20.
    5/20 - Basketball sized swarm 10' up in pine tree, parent colony just 20' away. Present since 5/19... just as we positioned the ladder to collect them, they burst into flight. Followed them to a neighbors tree where they settled again. Dropped a good bunch in the box, and left them to get back to work. Returned a few hours later, and they had all left.

    2 for 2 on misses this year... call it dumb luck!

    Just caught a swarm from one of my hives around 3:00 this afternoon. It was about the size of a soccer ball in a branch about 30-35 feet high. I am half tempted to cut down every tree on my property that is over 10 feet tall.

    Had swarm around 3:00 again today, from the same hive that swarmed yesterday. They were at the top of a huge tree, and it began to get windy and rain right after they landed. I put an empty hive under the tree and hoped for the best. They were still up in the tree a few minutes ago.

    Around 9 or 10am today in zip 19335. My brother sent be this pic of a swarm on one of my traps in his yard. I was hopeful that it came from somewhere else, but my nephew witnessed them leaving one of my hives. Oh well, at least I caught them. This was from a hive I split on May 4th (taking the queen and two brood frames).

    I think I also got two additional small swarms in 19335 the past few days also. I'll know in a couple days.
