Re: Swarm catcher boxes
They are living happily in my back yard now, collecting melaleuka nectar, and Brazillian Pepper starts in a couple weeks. I will be sure to get some of the honey to you Cleo. Thanks again!

Other than that, on the same day I went to pick up the Moore Haven bees, a swarm moved into a bait box I have set up at my son's house. I have 3 other locations with bait boxes, and this is only the beginning of swarm season.
