    Default Came home early to swarm in column

    I came home early today since I am way over on hours with the Florida State Fair and bees going to California.
    There was a swarm in progress going into a column of the carport on our farm.
    Stacks of supers wiith comb and they pick the column?!?!

    One of the future beekeepers that came to watch and learn took several pictures posted on the DropBox link.

    Came home to another swarm. It was certainly Good Friday. They went right in to a two super hive I had in storage.

    Two more swarms from the parent hive, shot these out of a tall pine with the 12 gauge, dropped right in waiting hives.
