had 2 swarm calls today.
first one was 10 feet up a tree, didn't have a ladder with me 9 ( will ask a little more on the phone next time!
when i shook them into the box i got a little suprise!
the tree limb didn't bend like i thought it should so only half of the cluster of bees landed in the box, the other half landed down my back as i was standing on the side of the bed of my truck holding the box over my head.
lesson learned, next time bring the ladder!
hived that one and the phone went off again, swarm 2 feet off the ground in a palm plant 10 miles down the road.
this one went easy and the photo below is of the second swarm.
even if i had photos of the first one you can bet they would never be posted
don't want to look like an idiot in a public forum!
the caller did get quite a good laugh when the bees went down my back!
