    First Swarm - caught them, and placed in 2nd hive, where they have since settled. This is my first Bee Year - brought the Nucs on June 4th of this year.

    Default swarms

    3 calls!
    2 were in the house by the time they called me?
    1 was an old hive that needed a cut out.

    Huge swarm started taking up residence in a 5 frame nuke I had setting out back at about 4:45 PM. Getting near dark now, 7:23 PM and they haven't all crammed in the nuc yet. It was really strange because I had just set up the box as a swarm trap and was going to take it several miles down the road and set it out. Well I'll just have to set up another nuc and take it down the road.

    Hived 2 swarms in 2 days.

    swarm #1 ) 8/27/09 a little bigger than a Soccer Ball sized swarm in an apple tree. Pretty sure from one of my hives.

    Swarm #2 ) 8/28/09 A little bigger than a cantelope sized swarm in a pine tree. Might be an after swarm from first one. As the trees were only about 20 feet apart.

    Lawrenceville Pa on May 16th . Everytime the bees started to congregate on the outside of the house they lived in, the homeowner sprayed them, went on for over a week. Claims he spent $80 on spray. They finally threw a swarm after I told him they were trying to leave but I wish it had included the pounds of bees he already killed. He's saving up the cut out fee to get the rest out of the house.
