Got my first swam yesterday
Got a call about a swarm yesterday. A fellow beekeeper who did not want the swam called me to see if I would be interested in it. After a few calls back and forth about the location of the swarm, I was given an ok to go get it. Got to the location and the swarm was in a very ideal location. I was just off a bit on the location but the fellow that called in the swarm showed up soon after I arrived. He told me to walk over towards him and just take a look. Well, there it was.
This swarm was located at a retirement community in a pine tree behind some billboards.
Well, if all swarms are this easy (I know they are not)... I will take as many as I can get.
The swarm was hived about 30 minutes later in one of my top bar hives that had a package abscond from earlier.
