    Default When Will It End?

    Anyone near OKC want a free swarm? My poor crepe myrtle.

    It's gotten so that I pass on more than I pick up. There was one in a tree near by and I missed it. That's the first time that I've ever seen a swarm move after 3pm. I went and told the person about the swarm at 5:30 and they were still in the tree. I went to finish the BBQ and then as going to pick them up about 90 mins later and they were gone.

    HHuuummmmm,,,,,,,,,,Perhaps a swarm exchange program Might be able to get Federal funding for such an experiment as that. We will title it, "Interstate CCD Identification/Investigation Via Genetic Exchange" Whew! I'm tired Need a nap.
