Y'all, I've broken my foot. Sad

I have a recently-caught swarm in a bucket trap in a public place (about 3lb bees). North-side of Tucson Arizona, in the town of Catalina......

If you want them (or know someone who does), I'll post the exact location.

I also have another small (about 1.5 lb) caught swarm living in a cardboard box on my property (2wk old). If you are so inclined, I will give them to you as well.

I already have two other hived colonies -- I won't be able to hive these two new ones right away due to a recent foot fracture.

Interested?

well my sister mailed back and said, no, she's a little skittish about handling them herself. I hope you find a prospect - I bet saguaro honey would be great.

Ah, thanks! I'm not too surprised. I don't think most people are as crazy as we beeks are! LOL!  grin

I contacted a second sister in Tucson about the bees without mentioning (to prevent false hopes) She also declined; well she called me tonight to say that she had 2 swarms show up in her yard! actually - one of the swarms may have been issued by a possibly established  feral hive under her shed. of course I asked her "So, they showed up FOR you and you STILL don't want to have a hive?"
(she's worried about ahb)
I had a nice chat with her, and upon sensing that I had nearly bored her to tears, I excused myself from the phone call.

Gosh,  I wish there was someone in your area who wants bees. Any other way you can find other beekeepers?Huh  Does your Agriculture Dept have a swarm list or something?  Any beekeeping associations out there you know of with members who would take them???

I think I'll be able to handle these now. I've got a good walking cast, and am surprised at the mobility I have.

I actually worked my bees today. I went to transfer one of the colonies I had up for adoption, and decided it was way too hot to keep. Definitely AHB, and I don't have a remote bee yard for nasty bees to be their mean selves.

Anyhow, I eliminated that colony. I wouldn't wish them on someone else! I did get almost a kilo of capped honey out of the deal, though (from their brood combs). They'd been in a cardboard box for scarcely a month.

Seriously, they were really hot bees.  shocked
