was working out in the yard today and heard that familiar roar as a swarm takes the air. I knew which hive it was coming from before I even turned around because when I was in it last week I saw several frames with queen cups with eggs. I pulled 2 frames with cups and made a nuc. I thought it was too late for them too swarm. we are currently in a dearth. but, they did. I tried to collect them with my pool skimmer first, but most kept going back to the branch, so I had to cut it. I saw the queen on the outside of the box, walking on a pile of bees, then she fell off. when I finally saw her on the ground, she flew up to the top of the box. I stood up in time to see her disappear down the side of a frame in the box.
