Nice swarm today.
Accomac County, Va. 75Degrees, Sunny, 15mph West wind, 2:00pm. Settled on a holly tree 5' above one of my traps. Scouts were going in and out but the swarm had not committed. Trap is only 2 cinder blocks high along the edge of a power line. Grabbed another box, put it in a wheelbarrow and placed under the branch. Shook and done.

Estimate 5lb swarm, boxed in a 10 frame w/drawn comb deep. Will be adding another box on top shortly.
