3 Swarms Today/Night April 13, 2010
« on: April 14, 2010, 12:10:29 AM »
First one was in a hollow steel cleat on a barge, must have been 3 and a 1/2 lbs. Had to run the queen out with bee quick & smoke.

Second is another decent one around 2 & 3/4 lbs.

Third, small but were building on the bottom of a run down chair. Had two small comb sections with cells, guess this lil swarm wasn't leaving.
