    Dover New Hampshire. This hive was started from a nuc in May. I was there to pull some frames out of the brood box to give to a slower nuc but was too late. Luckily they were low and I had an extra deep and bottom board with me.

    At around 10 am this morning one of my hives swarmed. They flew up into a tree around 40 feet up. I couldn't climb up and didn't have a long enough ladder. July 6, 2008.

    Default Collected feral swarm

    Collected approx 2 lb feral swarm from a homeowners porch at 7 pm last Wednesday. First one this year. Neighbors all watched from a distance, drinking beer and asked lots of questions. Wanted me to bring back a colony to place on their property when I got them going in their new hive.

    Default First Hive Swarm 7/5/08

    This is my first year as keeping bees and half of my hive swarmed about 20 feet up in a tree above their hive Saturday July 5th I'm in Townsend MASS. I managed to attach a bucket to a roof shovel pole via duct tape (love this stuff) and scraped the branch a bunch of times and put the bees into the top hive body with empty frames except two frames in the center. Soon the rest of the straggler bees followed and went back to the hive. Nothing like taking a shower in bees Mind you all this is my first experience with bees. What an experience. Now I need to go into the hive tomorrow and cut out the queen cells to try to encourage these bees to stay.

    I don't understand why they swarmed they only filled out 8 frames out of 10 in the bottom deep hive body and they have not begun to fill the top 10 frame deep super . This hive was a 3lb package installed on April 7th 2008.

    If anyone has any advice at all please let me know as I said I am new at this and will appreciate all your help and support. Thank You

    Huge swarm came flying in about 4:00 PM and settled into an empty hive about a 100 feet out in front of the small yard I have. I don't know where they came from but it wasn't my hives. May be ferel but I suspect they may have come from a small yard about a mile south of me. This is the first swarm I've seen or heard of in this area which is in the northern part of Oneida county, NY.

    Big Grin removed a swarm yesterday

    Got a call that a "ton of bees" were flying around the callers home and she wanted them gone. The bees began entering a large screened vent in the foundation and she was sure they had just arrived. Turned out they had only one 6x6 comb and two 1x1 combs built when I removed them from between floor joists the following evening. Estimated 6-7 lbs of very docile golden colored bees removed and now happily in residence in one of my hives.

    drobbins,

    Either your website is down, or my employer is filtering the port 8080.

    I can't get to your website with or without the 8080.

    Location: North Bend, Ohio, Southwestern Ohio
    First Swarm Call: May 11
    Last Swarm Call: June 25

    I was told by my Bee Club that swarm season in this region is normally 2 weeks before and after Mother's Day. I think because of lots of rain and cool temperatures this year was either extended or pushed back a bit.

    A half of my swarm calls (5 of 10) were clusters that had been caught out in inclement weather and clustered for at least 24 hours.
