    Default Best Swarm Call Ever!

    It is one thing to get to snag up swarms, loads of fun...but to get paid to do it?? The best!! The swarm was located at the north side FedEx location, so my boss lets me clock in before I go get them!! Nice little swarm, nice bee's....perfect!

    All I have to say is everyone that has any inclination to catch swarms should own a couple of these. I am forever running out of equipment and these things are cheap and handy. Of course, I glued mine all together so I wouldn't have to fight with it but it works great. I will post the video once I get it uploaded.

    Wow looks great. Funny I saw the cardboard box too. I just saw a youtube vid where a guy put a frame in a cardboard box sideways as a trap. Talk about low cost...I slapped one together today! Brad

    PS: What are those things on your feet. They look like socks but had a strap on top?

    Thx everyone.

    Fuzzy: it is a Samsung PL210 point and shoot camera and a Sunpak 6000PG tripod, neither of which are too pricey.
    Seal: Good idea!
    Jim: They are called Five Fingers and they are great! I have no feeling in my feet so I tend to overprotect them which causes them to atrophy, these allow me protection and full movement of my feet.
