Picked up my first swarm call of the season today! It was 15' or so high in an oak in a hospital parking lot (security didn't want me to video it) and took about 15mins to snatch grin

Good to hear your cut out went well Tommy...you'll be a pro in no time! I've got family over your way and get calls from them from time to time about removals. I'll refer them over to you if you'd like.

Will you be heading over this way for Bike Week?

I'm jealous... still deep Winter here today and for the next week at least.  Tommyt - helpers are a VERY good thing.  Maybe a local bee club can hook you up with someone - take turns or something with who gets the bees.  I'm lucky - I gave birth to a helper seventeen years ago. grin  And the great part is HE was the one who got me into beekeeping, although he complains that I have taken over his hobby. (Oh, shut-up and hand me another empty frame...)

Most likely HIPPA concerns over catching patients on film (or patients thinking they were filmed and suing).

Scott, I talked to Dennis2021 about the newly acquired swarm and he does not want to part with them.  I don't blame him because it will give him a great opportunity to compare a cut-out, a swarm and a split.  I was able to spend about an hour with him going through his hives this afternoon.  We found no queen cells in the larger hive like we did last weekend so that it a good sign they are not about to swarm.  When we opened the smaller, weaker hive, it had a distinctly louder sound than the stronger hive.  I told Dennis2021 that I had read that that roaring sound is a good indication that the hive might be queenless.  Good news is we found the queen and capped brood.  I got stung last weekend and got popped twice today...No MAJOR reaction to report so my concerns about being allergic are behind me.

Keep me in mind the next time you need or want to find a good home for a swarm.  I have 2 vacant lake front "new construction" hive bodies available for  some  bee bee bee The last week of March or the first of April seems like a long ways away especially now that my citrus trees are almost in full bloom. Thanks!!

Tommy it's great to hear the genuine love for the girls.  I am in my 2nd year and only did one cutout last year.  I started late.. (May)  I have my info all over south eastern PA but darn if it wasn't 33 this morning. Going to have to wait a bit for swarms.  My two hives (Cut out, and purchased Nuc from BjornBee are doing well.)  Looking forward to hearing your exploits between now and when I can get into the mix.!!

So you now have caught twice as many swarms as anybody else here if my math works out right.   grin

Very exciting Scott to be in the groove of catching swarms already. We probably don't start for another month.
