My Wife and I got a call about a bee swarm in a tree not far from our home. We went and used our bee vac to retrieve them. Went off without a hitch, and they are doing well with the queen already laying eggs as the pics show. Not sure why they swarmed this late, but they are in a good place now. 10555179_10202463860937052_1660915065_nBees.jpg 10564866_10202463862217084_1344323328_nBees.jpg 10585225_10202463859457015_1948706567_nBees.jpg 10544889_10202495783055085_1562776699_n Bees.jpg 10570648_10202495782415069_2090082675_nBees.jpg

I got two last Friday 1 august, one must have been in the swarm trap for a week, they had drawn out 4 rows of comb about 8" long.
The other was about the size of a baseball.

Anyway i took them home.
I am running a foundation-less test on the larger swarm, check them yesterday and they seem to be drawing out a little comb on the frames.
Baseball swarm i introduced into a queen less nuc.
