    Well its been 5 days since this swarm left and its still up in the tree. No interested scouts at my swarm traps. I sure wish I had a scissor lift or a bucket truck. in reference to post# 2332

    If you have a bee vac (or if you can borrow one) you can use it. Attach some PVC pipe to the end of the hose. To go 30' you'll probably need at least 2 lengths of PVC pipe. Get the lengths and a couppler. You may need to go up a small ladder, but it's doable.

    Two swarms in one tree.
    One 3-4lb. and one small 1-2lb.
    The bigger swarm had two queens and the smaller only had one.

    Big Swarm 5-6lb about 8' in an apple tree.
    It had just rained on them coming down hard. They were still pretty gentle considering.

    Picked one up yesterday about the size of a basketball. Swarmed out of another beekeepers TBH. He was gracious enough to allow me to capture it in one of my lang hives. I will wait a week or so, check for eggs and bring it back to the apiary.
