Got another swarm today, not big one but enough to start. Came from a house that has a hive in it we are going to trap out. My cousin came down to check his hives and found two swarms, was only able to get one, the other was already leaving when he found it, both were from his hives.

2 swarms same tree two different types of bees
Sunny and breezy
Afternoon, seen two to three and settled about four, retrieved at five.
One six feet high and One eight feet high in a cedar tree neighbors front yard.
Swarm moved into a bait box on my front porch. Not sure how big yet because I haven't opened it up. Box has only been there a few days. This is the second swarm I've caught off the porch. There must be an unmaintained hive nearby, as all my hives are new this year and not showing any signs of swarming.
Caught 2 swarms day before yesterday and had one get away. I had already caught 3 swarms before that about a week earlier. So from about April 10th until now Ive caught 5 swarms and knew about one other swarms that got away.

Got a call about a swarm that had moved into a drainage pipe at a school. I don't have a bee vac and I think that is the only way they'll get them out. The pipe runs down behind the brick so there is no way to take it apart and get them out. Not sure what happened to them. AtB8RefCQAA883p.jpg
