    Default My First Swarm!

    Here is the only photo I got: http://i.imgur.com/oNJd0.jpg. I was by myself and only took one picture beforehand on my phone.

    I should have measured. I'd guess a couple feet if I had to take a guess at it.

    Nice! A big "Canadian swarm",..on a Maple tree no less. - Aren't there any other kinds of trees up there?

    Haha! I never really took notice that it was a maple tree.

    I hope that the swarm is going to be okay. I was told they were there since Saturday, I picked them up on Monday, and it has been both cold and raining since. My hives are about an hour away, so I haven't had a chance to give them any sugar water. I don't know how long a swarm can survive without food, but I am hoping a week doesn't do them in.
