    CaBees, I either scoop them up in my hands and place them in the box or brush them directly into the box with my bee brush.

    I have used a bee vac once on a swarm removal. It was the size of a large beach ball and 2.5 stories up under the soffit. It worked out good but was a slow process. I will see if I can find some of the photos, when I return from our family vacation!(Cuba)

    Two mediums FULL of bees. The largest of my swarms thus far. This year.... could top that with the chilly weather. Swarm season here is right around the corner!

    This was a swarm that landed yesterday at about 2pm. I went at 7am to retrieve it. I tried a Squirt bottle with 1:1 suger water for the first time. It made getting it so much easier because they could not fly but would clump and fall. I put it in a nuc box and imidiatly moved it to my yard.

    This is the best picture of the queen I could get. She looked young with extra semen atatched to the end of her abdomen.

    A friend of mine, about 4 miles away has two hives. He did not feed this Spring, but, they came through the Winter very heavy. Well, in two weeks he has had 5 swarms from these two hives. Here is a photo of # 3.
