    Got another swarm today, not big one but enough to start. Came from a house that has a hive in it we are going to trap out. My cousin came down to check his hives and found two swarms, was only able to get one, the other was already leaving when he found it, both were from his hives.

    Have two hives that are ready to swarm.

    Default First Swarm

    We had our first swarm on 3-31-08 94040
    They flew up to a branch on an oak tree 25 ft above the hive. Unfortunately we were not able to catch them in time before they flew off. We had just split the hive two weeks earlier from a very strong colony.

    27410--about 5:00 p.m., today, sunny, 70 degrees. Nice swarm about a foot and a half off the ground and about ten feet from a friend's hive. He helped me get them into a five gallon bucket to take home and was not upset because the did not look like "his" bees.

    First swarm reports that I heard of among my friends here in SC was about 2 weeks ago. I've collected about 7 swarms this last week and waved at a couple more. They were too high to do anything else.

    Not my colony, but from a nuc I sold last June. The beek lives about 20 mins
    away. I don't know his zip but mine is 25529.
    The colony swarmed today, 4-12-08. The earliest I've ever seen a swarm here
    was the first Sunday of April, two years ago.
