    Default Wife thinks I'm Crazy

    My wife witnessed, for the first time, me catching a swarm. Unfortunately, one of my hives swarmed today and when I arrives home from work to discover it, my wife went to the bee yard to watch. The swarm was about ten feet up in an apple tree, I set up my ladder and began preparing to hive the swarm. My wife began to fret due to the fact I was not wearing any protective gear. I was able to set a hive body just under the swarm and shake them into the box. And of course bees began flying, I shook the branch one last time to be positive I had the queen in the box and began down the ladder. I set the hive directly under the branch and the girls that was outside the box began marching inside. I looked at my wife and all she would say is that I was crazy.

    Well, nothing you've said proves conclusively that you're NOT crazy ... just right about the swarm.

    Sounds like you did a good job. Next time ask her if she'd like to hold the ladder.

    I had a 7yo at the last swarm call I got that came out and was collecting the bees off the ground with bare feet and was picking up the bees and putting them in the box. I'm in full gear and he's here with shorts and bare feet. Lol. I did show him the difference between drones and workers and let him pet a drone. He was so excited.
