Thanks for sharing. I have only caught one swarm two years ago (it's still going strong), and it was small at the time. I keep on the lookout for another. Our swarm season doesn't start for another two months.
Busy day Nice work! Did you carry the comb down the ladder each time?
Please excuse me, I am now free to go manage & treat ;)
my ladies the best way I know how.
Wow, the open air hives are unusual, at least up here. How do they survive that long under their circumstances (rain)? Obviously have been there a while. Their scout bees must have failed "Scouting 101". I take it they are not that unusual in Fl? J

It got hot and thankfully the maintenance guy brought me two bottles of water.
Then I went to eat lunch at Bill Evans Restaurant and had a WONDERFUL pot roast sandwich before heading back out to pick up
all 3 of these hives at nightfall.
Pat, you should pitch a reality show. I would watch it for sure. J
with the wax being all white its probably not been up there too long right?
My Mother would have said you are unique, and that's what people want! J
