    Caught a swarm today, clustered on an American flag in an office building courtyard. Lowered the flag to within reach, shook bees off into cardboard box. Flag never touched the ground.

    Hived and back to work, 15 late from my lunch hour.

    While I did not see the swarm, I know I got two. I have bait boxes out and they are active and buzzing.
    I had queen cells and thought I got all of them out but guess I missed some.

    Caught first swarm here in NW Missouri 6/8. Late spring didn't have any of my hives start superseding until now. Weird year

    Noon
    Andover, MN 55304

    Ready for the drop:

    After a couple of hours, the box is ready to be moved to its new home:
    IMG_1170.jpg

    This swarm came out of one of my hives just prior to me getting to the yard. They had just formed three clusters in the oak. In about 10 minutes they consolidated into a single cluster.
    I had to improvise a bit as I was in the yards to pull feeders, add 2nd deeps and trim weeds. Ended up using a scythe to pull the branch low enough to grab it. The swarm box is simply a box with two drawn frames and eight frames with new foundation. I set the can of scrapings on there as there was lots of drone brood in it (Not sure if it made any difference...).

    I shook the cluster off of the branch and went to work a couple more yards in the area. When I came back two hours later, all of the bees were in the box. I added a frame of honey/pollen and moved them to their new home.

    Swarm moved into a house 6/11/13. I got a call after they were already in. Nothing I can do other than cutting them out at this point. 19320 Coatesville, Pa. I don't know where they came from, but there are tons of possibilities.
