    Picked up a 3# swarm in Hudson, NY 12434 yesterday -- ~10' up in a back yard pine tree -- sunny and 75 degrees.

    The homeowner called back this afternoon and I went back to a cedar tree in their front yard, about 15' up, and picked up a 5# swarm, tightly clustered since it was drizzling and 70 degrees -- nice mix of wild hybrids; all sorts of colors.

    Couldn't get to two others: one in 12580 and one in 12603.

    Central KY, noticed at 10am today, it was cloudy low 60's, 3 lb swarm about 10 ft up in a pear tree. I've got 10 hives within 20-100 ft of the tree, so I'm going to assume it was from one of my hives. Climbed a ladder and while holding a nuc box I shook the bees in. I did capture the queen and she looks to be quite young as she did not have much size on her. The were still in the nuc box tonight.

    Caught a previous swarm from another hive of mine on 4/30/12

    Lost a swarm from one of my hives in the last few days. Didn't catch or see it, just evidence in the hive.

    South side of Indianapolis, May 11.

    Got a call from the fire department with swarm at the fire house. Pulled up and put them in a box. The firement thought I was crazy as I did not have a veil with me. The firemen said "I will run into a burning building any day, but I am not about to go near any bees!!"

    Swarm.jpgBoth of my hives swarmed this past weekend. One on Friday the 11th the other was Sunday the 13th. I managed to catch the first swarm but could not get the second swarm in the box. After the second swarm I went in the hives to check for capped queen cells and made a nuc with one of the queen cups that had larva in it. I hope it takes off , will check in in about a week or two to see if it will hatch out.

    Another 4 pounder in The Dalles Oregon. Had started to move in on an old hive in a shed wall, so I did an impromptu cut-out to grab most of the bees. Homeowner wanted the honey from the old hive - looked pretty gross, so I gave him a strong caution and went on my way with a nice big swarm!

    5/13 in a branch near Rochester, NY -- probably a swarm from one of my neighbor's hives. I don't have any idea how much it weighed. I'd say it was basketball sized! 75 degrees, the second day of some warm breezy weather after a stretch of cold.

    Got a call about a swarm that had moved into a drainage pipe at a school. I don't have a bee vac and I think that is the only way they'll get them out. The pipe runs down behind the brick so there is no way to take it apart and get them out. Not sure what happened to them.
