    Caught a 4-5lb swarm tonight. 65 deg and mostly cloudy. Most likely came from the oak tree 10 feet from the swarm. The owner said they have been in the tree for 3 years. Brighton, Wi 53168

    I watched one of my hives swarm today, I followed the cloud of bees they landed in a fruit tree North North East 100 ft. and about 20 ft. up from the origional Hive. I captured it in a Nuc box with a few drops of lemon grass oil and used a scoop (dust pan) I made from and old antifreese plastic jug and duct taped to a broom handle . I only had a 15 ft ladder and the box was about 3 ft. below the swarm, I scooped as many bees that I could and poured them into the nuc box all the stragglers made there way to the nuc box by about 8:00 pm . Then I put the lid on and removed it from the tree.......YaHoo.....

    South Central Ohio, 43160, I got two calls Mohday, my first of the year, then one today. Captured 2 swarms in the last two days. Turned one down that was 17-18 miles south. I am hearing that the swarms around here are more numerous this year than anyone can remember.

    Earliest swarm I have ever seen here in our area. This was a small swarm. Boxed up and doing well. I am feeding them and will check for eggs next week.

    Lebanon, TN. Caught a 3 lb. swarm about ten feet up on a hackberry branch. Mid 80s and sprinkling rain. They barely got settled on their branch before they were in our swarm bucket and then installed in a brand new cedar Warre hive. Here are some pictures.

    Swarm call in Boston (Cambridge, 02139) today - I wasn't able to respond, so I don't know how big it was - they were from the home owners' hive - 5:30pm, off and on drizzly.

    Watched one of my hives swarm yesterday and caught and hived them. Right before a thunder storm. Which seems to be the most likely time for swarms for me.

    The Dalles, OR - #7 or so, 15' up in a pine tree - stayed put for almost three days, probably due to drizzle and rain! Bucket on a pruning pole - the ol' bump-n-dump!

    Swarm in Summerville, PA 15864 today at the neighbors. They called my home phone and left a message. After they called the county extension office and was told a swarm usually only sticks around for a few hours, they called another beekeeper who came and got them. It was a warm day - high 70's and drizzled this afternoon.

    I don't think they were mine. Out of my two hives, I split one and the other one I added a hive body to. All hives seemed to have the normal amount of bees coming and going this evening.

    I do know a feral swarm flew over our place and was heading in the direction of this neighbor's place 2 years ago, so i'm assuming it was another feral swarm.

    I had a swarm trap out, but they must not have been interested in it.
