I saw a news report of a swarm that landed on a car in Louisiana. They covered a fairly large area of the car roof. The bee keeper said he just found the queen, put her in a box and the rest followed.
My question for those of you who might know....If you were to look for the queen in a situation like this, would she be in the biggest "lump" or most active area or what?
Just in case we get a call like this (or wall, picnic table, etc.)
If they're spread out some yes, she's usually in the largest clump of bees.
