There's nothing like free bees,,,,,

Got a call for a swarm.....turns out to be 2' off the ground in a place where I could get a bottom board and box under them.

2 Shakes of the branch and they were all in the box and in the back of the truck.

Nothing like a free swarm....especially when its not a swarm from one of your own hives.....it was so nice to have an easy one for a change,,,,instead of having to get 25 feet up on a ladder.

For swarm capture do you just go to your local agriculture office and put in your name and contact info? I would like to get on the list where ever it is so I can get a call or two. Beginning of this year, a italian swarm made it on the news that was right in the parking lot of a doctors office. Made people not want to get out of their car to go their appointments. Was funny. It was a huge pile though. Would of loved to have that swarm.

Once I register with the plant board my name was automatically given to the county extension office as a resource for bee calls.
