    Default holy cow, a big swarm

    My daughter comes home today and says a friends neighbor has a beehive in there tree, been there since yesterday. Then she shows me a pic and I was like that is a swarm, I told her to call them and ask if it was still there. It was, so we headed over. It was about 5 ft off the ground in a tree. And was the size of two basketballs. I ran home grabbed my gear and we got the swarm. It was so heavy when it fell. I told her that was the best mothers day present ever....

    20160504_164609.jpg we will see if it works, this doesnt show all of it, it went up another 4-5 inches but I couldn't get it all in the picture, due to the leaves.
