Temp: 80f, clear blue sky, no wind.
Swarm was from my own hive, I put another super on two days prior but the girls must not have read the memo.
Probably 6 pounds of bees and my first retrieval, lots of fun shaking that many bees onto the heads of my wife and her friend
well it's been a busy month here in nw wyoming , 3rd swarm as of last sat. fella on the edge of town called and said he had a swarm in a chair ???/ went out to look and sure enough, they had moved into an old whiskey barrel chair...... the chair did not survive the bee - ectomy
date when the bees swarmed or when you found the swarm.
comments - example: if the swarm came from your hive, or if you were called to pick up a swarm, how long was it there. This is not for cutouts unless the bees just took up residence and are not established. It would also be great to include a small photo of the swarm.
