I had my 5th swarm today. As usual they ended up 20 plus feet on the branch of a tree. I had my ladder set up and my pole saw pole with a bucket duck taped to it and ready to go. When I suited up and headed over to catch the swarm it was gone. It amazes me how large swarms can just vanish so fast when they decide it is time to go. All the swarms were Russians so maybe they will make it on there own. Maybe someday I will catch a swarm of my swarms offspring. That would be great.
Has anyone been able to track one of their swarms when they leave?
I would like to know where all the swarms go.
There is a farm about a mile away from me. I wonder if they let me mount some swarm traps if I might be able to catch some of my swarms. I don't think many other people have bees around here.
