Swarm call not too far from the house this time. Melissa called and said she had a swarm down low in a bush and they needed to get gone before the neighbor sprayed them. They were in a small tree on the fence between the houses. Melissa's brother (I think) saw my add on craigs list so she gave me a ring, her sister was afraid I would turn out to be the craigs list killer shocked .

Melissa was the lady that called about the swarm. She lived on one side of the fence and her neighbor, a Japanese family that was from Chicago, wanted the bees gone N O W. The neighbor has two small children and was afraid they would get stung. They were amazed when I just walked up to the swarm and started trimming branches back and stuck my bare hand into the bees. Melissa was not afraid after that and got to do a little explaining of what was going on, showed her drones and got her to hold one, she even clipped off the branch while I was holding the swarm. Her sister kept calling wanting to know if she was alright, afraid I might turn out to be a craigs list killer  rolleyes

I missed a swarm that I was called about yesterday. By the time I got there it was gone. (Later found it had taken up residence in a concrete wall using a hole that the electric lines feed into the building)

It may just be me, there seems to be more swarms than last year and earlier too for this area.
