    Yep, there was a 4th on the back side of the tree. All had queens, all laying.

    2 weeks ago I got 7 swarm calls in 2 days. I was pretty tired after the second day. Fortunatly about 5 of the 7 were close to the ground and the other 2 were not over 10 foot high.

    Guy in town here in an older neighborhood had 5 swarms in 3 days in his yard. I captured 3 of them but 2 were too high to handle. There are a couple of long term bee trees in the area. Will be remembering him and putting out swarm traps next spring!
