    Default Four Swarms, One Tree

    Swarms one, two and three from the same parent colony.



    Swarm four, same tree same colony.



    Creative stacking. In just three days I went from 3 hives back to 9.

    Too funny, Friday a neighbor came & got me about 4 after swarms from a chimney.
    Think I caught the prime swarm about a week before. Only two of the after swarms stayed in boxes for me.
