    Have a swarm that was sprayed before it moved into my trap. You couldn't tell there was a problem when you saw them going into the trap. The morning of day 3 they were moved into a hive. There has been major bee loss. The loss is not much as of yesterday. At least some of the bees...

    This last weekend I had a swarm land in my yard. I'll include a photo. They seemed healthy and what I thought was large group. I am a total novice and quickly made some phone calls and decided to attempt to keep these bees instead of exterminate them. With the help of a couple of beekeepers...
