Nice Swarm in Charlotte NC
« on: April 14, 2008, 10:19:49 PM »
Got this swarm from a building supply house in Charlotte NC. I forgot to get the shot of the complete ball because I was rushing due to rain working its way into the area. I remembered to take photos after it was in the box...or at least most of it. Found the queen and got her off the re bar as quickly as I could so she wouldn't wedge herself in between the rods. She is nice and plump.

That box you got there is a wee bit fancy for me, lol. That's a lot of rebar.

Good catch!!!

Scott, oooh nice.  Have a beautiful and wonderfullest day, Cindi
