    Prime swarm, from one of our hives. Watched them swarm to a nearby tree. Same tree that a swarm went to last year, 18-20ft up. Happened between noon and one. Hived them in a 10 frame deep.

    My big beautiful Russians I bought this year swarmed away. Hopefully they found a good home. T_T

    Got a call yesterday but went and captured them today. A nice swarm. Was very unexpected with the weather we have been having.

    may 14. Just hived a very nice swarm from a friends property in south Lane County. I didn't get a single sting from them. On the other hand, the Blackberry thicket where they were hanging out stabbed the heck out of me.

    Bees moved into one of my bait hives sometime between 5/9 and 5/11! Milwaukie, just south of Portland. My first catch!

    Also, I forgot to post it, but my neighbor's hive swarmed back on 4/19. Sadly, they decided that my bait hives weren't sufficient...
