Bees Just Swarmed!
« on: May 12, 2009, 04:33:23 PM »
My wife just called me at work and said that one of my hives just swarmed and landed in a tree close by.  The kids said it was the coolest thing they had ever seen. 

Called my mentor and he's on his way to the house to try and catch the swarm for me as I can't break away from work.  I'm currently in the middle of testing one of the most sophisticated fighter jet engines in the world for the Joint Strike Fighter and all I can think about is how much I wish I were at home to catch that swarm. 

I've only been keeping bees for a short time (less than a year) and I gotta tell you...  I think I've got the bug.

Bees have been caught and are in the process of marching into their new home.  My wife, kids and mentor said everything went textbook perfect.  And to think...  I've never even seen a swarm yet.

 Good! Now pay attention to your work for the rest of us :).
