Nope, I don't want to catch them and relocate'em...why cause somebody else a problem and besides...I want'em dead....D.E.A.D.....dead.  Ok, so it's gotten yard is beginning to look like Flanders Field at the end of WWI.  I've got three places around the yard that they're basically bottom plowing.  I'm sitting up tonight with a twelve gauge pump and making a round every far nothing.  I'm thinking they must be hitting during the pre-dawn hours.  So, JP..Schawee...some of you varmits any tips for me?  

If I find the burrow what should I do to irradicate them there?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Well, I tried to post some images of this giant swarm, but got red flagged, huh I will share them somewhere else. Great beekeeping to you all, thought I had found another forum to frequent

Hi and welcome to the forum!

We actually have a very good reason to enforce the moderator inclusion of pictures for new members.  During the years we have had a lot of spam images in this forum posted by both bots (automatic posting) and humans.  The forum is quite well ranked in google, and thus is a target for spam images. We work hard to keep this forum in good shape, and not ruined by porn and other spam images. This makes it a bit inconvenient to post images for new members, but it will not take too long for a new member to be able to post images.

 Went out today and topped off the feeder with 1 to 1. I brought my smoker but didn't use it. The bees didn't pay any attention to me until I chased down and killed a black wasp that was sitting in front of the hive.
 Afterwards I sat on a rock and watched them kicking a drone out. He wasn't happy and kept diving back in. While I was there I saw a few bees bringing in pollen. After about 10 minutes, I killed another wasp and left them to continue doing what they want.

 You could try moving some of the bees over to the empty hive and then swap hives.
I personally would make a nuc with the queen that has the lesser amount of bees until she has several frames of brood. As soon as she has emerging brood, put them back into the full size hive.

Hey yall, Im new here. Cumberland Va. Caught my first swarm today. It was huge. In a cherry tree above my neighbors hives. I had an extra box so I was able to capture them. Im thinking he dosent want to grow over his 2 existing hives so tommorrow, I will find out, I will raise them and give him the surplus honey. Had to climb the ladder twice, first trip I must have left her up there. Second trip the bees were flocking to the box and lots of fanning going on. Will see tommorrow I suppose. Thanks G

Got my first ever yesterday. There were about 100 bees clustered on the outside of a two story balcony. I brushed them into a box and saw bees through a 3/16 or less crack in the boards. I thought they had already moved in but when I got to the ground, I stumbled and hit the hedge bushes. Bees flew everywhere and I saw them re-cluster. I moved that cluster into the box on the second story and they immediately started fanning. I checked today and they have totally abandoned the house. I guess the queen couldn't fit through the crack so the homeowner and I both got lucky. Hooked for life!!

i have always been really happy with their stuff.  since they are closer to me, the shipping is usually the deal maker, but their stuff is pretty nice.

Took a week to get here but no problem no rush .... the shipping was free and the supplies were the same price or a little cheaper on some th_thumbsupup
