This afternoon I received a swarm call around 4pm, now it gets dark around 6:30pm or so.
I figured it would be a nest of wasp but went and sure enough there was a cluster of honey bees on a redbud limb.
I used my bee vac for it was faster and brought them home.
It was a cluster around 3 pounds.
I don't know whether the queen was there or not but it was a tight cluster.
I brought them inside the house for tonight for it is suppose to get down to 36 degrees F.
I sprayed them lightly with sugar syrup for feed.
Tomorrow when it warms up I'm going to put them in a 6 frame hive and give them some 2-1 sugar syrup with Pro Health.
Day after tomorrow I plan to merge them with another hive.
I feel that is the only way I can get them ready for winter.
October 2nd is kinda late in my book to get bees to overwinter.
Any suggestions will be greatfully appreiciated.
