This swarm was spotted taking off from the trees above my hives. A quick look shows all my hives look congested. 7 days ago I had some empty queen cups but no further evidence of impending swarming in a few. Would a feral swarm "stop over" briefly at an apiary? They flew on about 1/4 mile and were found on the end of this old log. I will look at my hives more thoroughly tomorrow. This swarm was HUGE and I would think I could tell if it were mine. I do have the swarm in a deep in the woods. Will bring it out tomorrow.
