That 25 ft high swarm I told about yesterday is in a deep and a medium I had set up for them.
They came down this morning before I had a chance to go and change the medium for a deep.
Will move them to their new location tonight.
Also found a Virgin queen with them, the workers had her on the ground balling her.
This swarm came from the swarm/colony I caught year before last. About this same time of year.
That swarm filled 3 deeps and a shallow. I got two boxes of honey off it that year, 07.
They swarmed last year and I split after the swarm and it swarmed again two more times.
I was not lucky enough to retrieve those.
It swarmed Monday of this week and went back. I split Tuesday and it swarmed yesterday.
I set the boxes up and with in an hour after they swarmed there was quiet a few checking it out.
When I noticed they were dragging scrap out I was pleased.
Hope they stay long enough for me to get another box on. It was bigger than I anticipated, they were clustered "elongated" along the limb for about 5 ft. and not ball clustered.
I am back up to 9 colonies.
All this happening just as our main flow is starting.
