JP, i know you probably said, but i don't remember.  what do you do with all those bees?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

He sends them out to me in California. Ha! Ha!

Anyway, that swarm would have been perfect for me.  Does it get any easier than this one??

I like to run between 40-50 hives, the rest go to friends. I also set new beeks up.

The palm swarm was given to my friend Bailey in Raceland, Louisiana. I can only guess that they are doing fine. As far as I know, he added a medium and some feed as they barely fit inside the deep I put them in.
