    Was visiting Edwardsville Illinois, 0n the 9th of May, when a swarm of bees landed by the house I was staying in.
    Before a bee stings, it will be sure to let you know that it will hurt them more than it will hurt you.

    Discovered a swarm occupied one of the bait boxes 5 June, hadn't checked this box for about a week so I'm not sure how long they've been in residence.

    SW IL 62278, 5 June 14

    6-16-14 zip 62278 South Western Illinois
    Weather has been rainy most of the week

    Moved a bait box with no activity to where I had captured a swarm earlier this month. Had a small swarm, maybe 2lb, land less than two feet behind my head while trying to install the box; transferred them into the box since it was getting dark. Shocked is an understatement.
