    Found my first swarm this year at 7:45 pm, May 9, 2010. East Liverpool, Ohio 43920.
    I happened to be in the backyard and almost walked on top of them. They were clumped on the ground about 50 yards from my hives. We placed a nuc on the ground and started slowly scooping them up into it. Once some were inside they fanned at the entrance and they started walking in. We used the bee brush to help move them along. We finished with flashlights! Tonights low is in the 30's and I hope they make it.

    Hunstonville Ky...I gotta phone call last night that there was another swarm in this guys willow tree. I just got about 5 pounds saturday out of the willow tree and this morning i went back to the same willow tree and got 4 more pound! I got home installed them in the left side of my Observation Top Bar Hive and they started to draw comb right away. About an hour later i went to check on their progress and i had a softball size cluster on the corner of the swarm box which was tilted towards the entrance hole...So i helped them out by opening the top door for the ladies...So i guess thats true that the ladies wants someone to open the door for them all the time...hahaha
