    Default Captured a swarm in Wedowee Alabama

    Got het call, drove over and made it education for everyone that watched... Cut the limb (small) off and put it into hive box with 4 frames. Will remove it in a day or two when I have time and add other frames... Maybe a quart of sugar water just incase..

    Leaving the stick in will just result in a bunch of burr comb. Straightening out that mess, will result in loss of new brood and waste new beeconstruction and worst case, crunch the queen. I don't know what acebirdian logic caused you to leave the stick in, but take it out and put in the frames. Congratulations on your capture.
