Now yer just making me jealous. I'm still weeks away from the earliest possible swarms. End of May is when I start looking for swarms here. Didn't even see a bee in my back yard until a few days ago.
Have to talk my wife into moving to Tenn. She wants to move south but hasn't decided where.

In that case I am not even telling you all about catching number 19 on Saturday. I missed number 20 because of my daughter’s soccer game,

My wife is from Pruden.
Did you ever know of a Frank Partin, at least I think that was his name, had maybe a 100 hives. Lived in Frog Level just past the tracks at Pruden.
I use to keep bees up at LMU for a couple of years when they still raised crops there. That was 37 years ago.

I got a call this evening for another swarm. The were about 3 feet off the ground and it went really well and was relatively quick. View attachment 63198
Don’t you love it when the swarm is only 3 feet off the ground? I sure do!
