    Default Swarm that I missed

    This is "right before I brushed them" and right after they make a break out from the trap box.

    I did get them on a second attempt but they swarmed out as soon as the sun came up the next day.

    Time to be a gypsy again, 2014 will be my prep year, my bees want a better area with actual rainfall.

    If you put a frame of brood in with a swarm they wont leave. Before i knew this i lost about half my swarms putting them on foundation alone.
