picked up a swarm 7/14/07 a little smaller than a soccerball from the front edge of a 5th wheel camper at wellington lake at wellington kansas 8:30 in the evening swarm was noticed at 5:00 pm temp 89 degrees and humid camper parked about 100 yards from the lake in a row of trees dont know why they chose the camper
My number 1 hive swarmed today. Landed 8 feet up in a tree on my property, so I sprayed them with syrup, brushed them into a 5 gal. pail and dumped them onto comb and honey. Hope I didn't crush the queen when I closed up the hive, but bees went in for dark. Estimate 5 to 6 pounds of bees (Visually, bout twice the size of a three pound package)
4/29/11 Kansas City
Two calls today, caught one. The one I caught is from a bee tree I've been watching. The other swarm returned to their hive in a soffit, and I imagine they will swarm again tomorrow (I hope).
66062 & 64138. Yeeeha!
4 last week around the Kansas City area 64103, 1 from a managed colony the other 3 were tree bees. 1 of which was **** grouchy when I inadvertently (while standing on my tip toes) dropped them on my own head.
