I just got another swarm call! This time it is raining, so this should be fun.

Brenda, go, girl, go!!!  Have fun, smiling.  Beautiful days in our lives that we all love and share, health.  Cindi

Yes! It was not a big swarm, as it was about the size of a volley ball and was clustered on a deck railing when I got there. But the people who owned the cabin were great! Whew!  ;)

I also discovered a colony in an older travel trailer on the property, so I believe that is where the swarm came from....the swarm was not 50 feet from the travel trailer! I am going to have to remove the aluminum siding off of the travel trailer to get the colony. I am doing that next weekend, as they want to spend Mother's Day at their cabin.
