Thats great that you caught a swarm! And, after reading your story,I felt the excitement too!
I dont really know why it gets me so worked up catching bees, but it does! And swarms are sometimes just so darn easy!
Its great you didnt have to climb way up on a ladder with no help too!
I wish I was with you to share the excitement! It almost seems that its like taming a tiger except in a smaller version! Also, its like handling thousands of tiny loaded pistols flying around! You know what stings can feel like but you just jump in and catch the bees anyways, throwing caution to the wind! And, then, when they stay, you feel like the bees like you and are happy what youve done for them by giving them a nice house to live in!
This is GREAT Annette! I cant wait to hear how they do!...Now watch, you'll probably get back to back calls on more swarms!
And, JP! What a great example of how friends should treat each other! I'm thrilled that you took the time to help Annette out the way you did!..Giving your time to others is sometimes the greatest gift in the world!
