    Springhill. Louisiana. 33rd parallel.
    One of my hives swarmed (a relatively small swarm) sometime after Saturday (April 19) and they went into one of my lure boxes around 2:00 PM Tuesday April 22. They scouted 2 lure boxes Monday (Sunday ? ?) and until they adopted the lure box Tuesday afternoon.
    It rained a puddle full Monday night. Temps in the AM in the low 60sF to low 70sF. At 2:00PM Tuesady the wind was calm and around 80F.

    Well, well, now one of my own hives swarmed 10:38am 6/14/14, clear sunshine day 87 degrees approx.

    They are in a tree approx 40' high, I placed a large Top Bar Swarm Trap almost directly under where they are in the tree in hopes of luring them back to the hotel atmosphere they left from lol

    OK now what to do with the hive they left from?

    Being new and not knowing what do to is disheartening:{

    Thanks for any feedback!

    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.



    This forum is not for general discussion.
