I had an appointment yesterday so was in a nearby larger town most of the day. When I arrived home there was a note in the door a queen I had ordered was at the post office, A different story.
When arriving home wioth her I checked the phone for messages and Bob said I have a swarm and it is 11:45 if your intrested. I called him only to learn from his wife he was after a second swarm. I drove to where he was and found him standing watching the bee all on his tail gate and blood running down both arms. What is going on I asked. He explained the tree has thorns (Honey Locus) and getting int to the branch the bees had been on got him scratched a bit. He explained he had cut the branch which just fell and missed the deep he had placed to catch them and hit on the tail gate of the truck.
As We were talking I saw the queen walk across the tail gate and didn't grab her just pointed to her for Bob to see. He missed her when he grabbed but thought she may have went into the deep.
I got two bee brushes and started scooping bee up and dumping them into the hive.
That didn't work they just flew back into the tree.
