 In all seriousness, does this phenomenon really occur?  I need to hear more about this, this kind of stuff triggers that fascination that comes from the very depths of my soul, and certain things I find so intriguing that I can't stand it!!!  Tell more about it.

And if any other forum friends have stuff to add to this intriguing thing, tell the stories, I need to know!!!!  Have the most beautiful and awesome day, lovin' this great life we're livin'!!!!!  Cindi

Cindi, why would I rent a 38' boom lift on March 3, and wait from 6am until almost dark way the heck up there if this didn't exist?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Yes, March 3, 2007. In two days you bet I'll be right back in that same tree, have had the bucket lift reserved since last week. The rental place knows by now to reserve the lift for me, cause I've been picking it up for the last 4 yrs or so.

[every yr this same tree catches swarms on March 3. I waited from 6am until right before dark for the tree to turn, which it eventually did, but we didn't have enough light for any proper footage.]

In my area it seems to correlate to the bloom of cedars.
They almost look alien with their goopy red ooze.
My wife was ready to call the extension office thinking they were 'sick'.

I bet every area has one variety of tree that is a tell tale sign.

These guys in the this video wait until the first of June before they sit from dusk to dawn waiting for swarms. I wonder what tree they have in their area that gives them the tell-tale signs of swarming.
