Two Autumn swarms this year very strange...i mean they are pumping but hey what the?

perhaps its all that rain we got last week, crowded them in for 5 days?

they look good this time ie didn;t kill the queen.

Hey Eco weird stuff with these Autumn swarms I caught one that came from a feral colony in a tree on Wednesday.
Like you I couldn't believe it.  I knew where the ferals lived it the bush behind my house and I was walking in the yard when I heard them fly over the fence and land in a shrub 2 metres off the ground.

I love swarms.

Cheers

I guess it doesn't matter how many boxes you have on sometime there just too many bees in the hive
