    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.

    Two swarms that another beekeeper got in Summerville, PA 15864 on Sunday May 26.

    The owners saw the first swarm come out of an old house on their property on Saturday. The 2nd swarm came from the same house - both were good sized swarms so either there are two different colonys living in the old house or the first swarm was the old queen and this second one had a virgin queen. After the 2nd swarm came out, they called a local beekeeper who came and got them both.

    These are the first confirmed swarms in our area so far this year.

    A hive swarmed yesterday, May 27.
    Before a bee stings, it will be sure to let you know that it will hurt them more than it will hurt you.

    My stronger hive (I have two) swarmed yesterday! I'm still new at beekeeping so. Missed the signs of over crowding. I knew what was happening when I checked the hives yesterday & by the time I ran in to get my husband to show him, they were gone! I hope they find a good home or somebody finds them & calls an experience keeper in the area... it was sunny & mid 70s. Was a beautiful day. Today has been raining & cold I hope they've found a warm dry home. Was a pretty amazing site to witness even if it means I had to say goodbye...

    A country run like a hive would be a cold, cruel world. It would make the Spartans seem like the Walton's.

    you may be right. but the so called free programs would not be there to use, so the free rides would be gone.

    Was it a swarm or an abscond?

    Got a call this morning about a swarm. Near London,OH. Swarm had come from wild bees in a nearby tree. It was as easy as it gets to capture. With my hive sitting on the ground the tip of the swarm was about 3 inches about the hive. Then I had to carry the hive all of 6 feet back to my van parked in the driveway. Took 5 minutes at the most.
