    My new nuc this year swarmed June 15th, Fathers Day. Saw them 20 ft up in a tree behind the hive on a branch big as my arm. Tried to get them in a nuc box while hanging on to a ladder. Didn't work but was quite impressive seeing them go over the garage, through the front yard and to parts unknown. No stings and I'll chalk it up as a learning experience.

    Hot 80 degrees, muggy mostly clear, 30 miles south of Indianapolis

    2nd yr 2 new hives

    Swarm in southeast IN (near Cincinnati) today. It took a little work, was in two seperate areas about 4 feet apart on a chain link fence. Kicker is, I started building a bee vac today. . . . Needless to say it wasn't finished in time for the swarm call.

    Indianapolis, IN - 5/1/15

    It was a modest sized swarm in my lilac bush. Cut the branch and they seem to be settling into the new home. I checked all my hives and am at a loss as to where it came from. My biggest had no queen cells in it an still has as many bees as it did a few days ago when I last inspected it.
