    Got one today about 2:30 a foot off the ground in a bush - about 4 pounds I would guess. Very well behaved.

    4/24/14. Had a large swarm come into one of my yards while I was working my bees yesterday. Lit on a cedar branch about 8' off the ground. I just walked over, put a box underneath, and shook them in. I wish they were all that easy!

    Blessed with one last Tuesday. in a swarm catcher in my back yard. Here In Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Only heard of a couple others. The longer colder winter will probably delay this years swarm season a little.

    Hornbeak,Tn. 38232. May 1, 2015. About a 2-3 lb swarm. Caught in a 15" double fiber pot hanging in a tree 15' up on rope. Used lgo and melted old dark comb inside. A friend from church just starting out this year got them the day they moved in. He really liked getting his first (easy) catch using my trap I hung behind our fellowship building.
