    All 3 hives swarmed this week within 2 days of each other. All out of my reach, but scouts are checking out some empty nucs I set up.

    Caught a swarm today, clustered on an American flag in an office building courtyard. Lowered the flag to within reach, shook bees off into cardboard box. Flag never touched the ground.

    Hived and back to work, 15 late from my lunch hour.

    Pretty sure they weren't from any of mine but 24 hours after I swapped out a trap box/nuc 7' up an old maple tree, a swarm moved in (day before yesterday).

    Half my observation hive. Looked everywhere, nary a gathered swarm. Is it possible they could have found a new home in a matter of hours?

    As you start seeing swarms in your area perhaps you might reply to this thread so we can track the season?

    A simple post of your location, weather, origin of swarm if known, and date would be great.

    Thanks in advance!

    Dutchess County, NY 6-4-15 Sunny skies about 74 degrees, no wind. Package bees hived in late March swarmed and I just happened to be out near the hive when it initially took off. Was able to capture and re-hive it. Great experience.

    Yes, I believe one of my colonies swarmed Sunday 6/7 and another was spotted a few miles from me; maybe my girls, maybe not?
