    April 31, 2015.....caught my first swarm this morning. Southcentral Kansas (near Wichita). I thought this was pretty early in the year for my area. First pic...swarm hanging from hammock with many more on the ground. 2nd pic....dropped about a third of them into a hive box and the rest raced for the entrance. 3rd pic....after about 10 minutes, most were inside set up housekeeping.

    Caught a huge swarm today and hived it. Then checked my 9 traps and had swarms in 4. Got to watch and video a huge swarm move into a trap. Was afraid they were not going to fit inside.

    Treatment free bees from traps and cutouts.

    Had one on Thursday, April 2nd and a second one on Monday, April 6th. Located in Suffolk, VA and the temperatures were in the high 70s. Best I can tell, both swarms departed the existing hive in late morning.

    April 7 15. I caught a small 1-1.5 lb swarm in downtown Portland today. It was hanging at eye level on a small branch. It was a cloudy light misty day, temperature was about 45 degrees. Usual for Portland. I Clipped the branch and dropped the swarm in my collection bucket. Total time about 30 seconds. Now I have to go buy a lottery ticket.

    1 swarm 4-3


    Caught in fiber traps
    1 on 4-4
    1 on 4-5
    2 on 4-7
    Swarm Commander used in fiber traps.

    2 of the catches in the fiber traps were sitting next to an empty hive also baited with swarm commander and comb. Bees chose the fiber trap both times.

    Two swarm calls

    1. Devine Texas 78016 but when I called to make sure it was still there she said it had left
    image.jpg

    2. San Antonio TX 78239. My first searm capture. Nice swarm in a tree. Got them in a deep box. Seemed pretty aggressive. Every time I brushed them off the tree about 50-100 bees started hitting my vail and would follow me for about 100 yards.
