I got my first swarm call yesterday and went out and picked them up.


So I set up a med on a bucket and the bee's marched in.


Then they marched out


They did this 2 or 3 times It was kinda cold so this may have had some thing to do with it.

So I took my gloves and scooped them up and placed them in the hive body kept doing this untill I got 80% in the box. At that point I must have got the queen in there also the bees that were in the air would land on the box.
