Right to it, been very, very busy! The massive swarm on the garbage can was a 911 call. Showed up and didn't expect to see something like this, it was quite freakish.
I was immediately informed there was more bees in the park (Clay Park) approx 65 yards from where we were standing, you could see them in a circle on the sidewalk from the spot where the garbage can was.
The bees on the sidewalk were acting odd, as if they were sprayed with honey robber or something.
Best I could piece together is that the caterpillar sprayer guy, sprayed the tree and possibly afterwards sometime, this gigantic swarm showed up on a limb overhead (is what the film crew parked right next to it told me)
They said the huge cluster fell to the sidewalk and the vast majority swarmed over onto the guy's garbage can, where I was called to.
I housed both, the ones on the sidewalk and the ones on the garbage can, seperately.
I saw a queen in the smaller cluster, but come to find out the huge cluster was queenless, so my buddy Bailey & I combined them with a swarm of about one and 3/4 lbs of bees into two deeps and a medium.
The smaller cluster with the queen is in quarentine in my backyard and appear to be doing alright.
Sorry this is so long of a post but I must go on. My wife had to bring me another deep so I could house all the bees from the garbage can and in the process of getting one, one single bee wound up in her hair and she was stung.
Longer story short, we wound up in the emergency room and now she carries an epi pen.
I will go on about the other stuff, the other swarms, new beeyard and new beekeeper later.
