A swarm landed in my yard, swarm hanging on the front of a Nuc which contains another swarm caught 4 days ago. The queen was on the ground so I scooped her up and set her on the inner cover of an empty Hive. After scouted the box they escorted her in. This queen is double the size of my Carnies but the bees are on average 1/3 smaller, a lot of them are very dark. Given the location of my yard to all the others in the area I/m thinking they are Ferrel stock.
