@Mr. BeemanThose are the nucs that didn't fare so well on the trip from florida to Pennsylvania, I set them to the side for a week or so and recheck them, they normally bounce back very well and get sold.
What the heck? They landed within an arm's length of the ground? My last swarm landed 40 feet off the ground in the top of a Ponderosa pine tree. Nothing like hauling a modified vacuum cleaner up 40 feet and vacuuming them all up!
