Got 4 swarms today, one in just the nick of time as they were about to take up residency in a homeowner's wall. The queen was still on the exterior and I was lucky enough to swoosh her into the box. Luck was all it was as it could have easily been the other way around, whereby the queen had entered the wall void. Good luck getting her out then. I wasn't sure if I had gotten her, but the bees were telling me otherwise by fanning nasonov, you could smell it. Caught her and caged her, and that was that. one was about 2lbs, another about 3, a 4lber and a 5lber.

Will post pics later, the wife and I are gonna eat some sushi!!! Eat your heart out John!!! And Scott!!! Bahahahahahahahaahahahaah!!!

JP, oooh you are a busy man, I cannot believe how many cutouts and swarms you are doing these days, no wonder you want to eat Japanese food, I would too, it is such an energy lifting food, and yes, I love the sushi, especially California rolls.  Have a beautiful and wonderfullest day, Cindi
