    Before a bee stings, it will be sure to let you know that it will hurt them more than it will hurt you.

    All 3 hives swarmed this week within 2 days of each other. All out of my reach, but scouts are checking out some empty nucs I set up.

    I got a good sized swarm this morning at 9am in downtown Halifax. Watched the whole thing happen, and it was amazing. Not the first time I've seen one, but still so wonderful to see. I know where the swarm came from, and know that it travelled just about exactly 1.5km through downtown Halifax to reach me. We have a network of beekeepers on a single Google Groups email list, so I was able to put the word out and get a reply right away to hear who lost the swarm, and a couple of people between here and there reported seeing the swarm pass. Nice Day 82F / 28C - 16 days earlier than my first one last year.

    Clark/Skamania County, SW Washington - I've picked up six in the last few weeks, passed on one in Wasco Co., Oregon last night. Went to set up a trap out this morning, found a basketball sized swarm up in a tree!

    Chester County, PA 19335 - Caught swarm about 1 hour ago. They were already mostly in my trap when I got home, so not sure if it was from my own hives.

    Got one in a 2 year old swarm trap I had forgotten about. Must have moved in within a month or so.

    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.

    Very cool. Adds new meaning to "free" bees!
