    7/27/2011, Lander WY 82520
    Temp: 80f, clear blue sky, no wind.
    Swarm was from my own hive, I put another super on two days prior but the girls must not have read the memo.
    Probably 6 pounds of bees and my first retrieval, lots of fun shaking that many bees onto the heads of my wife and her friend

    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.
