Ya gotta love it! Leave that branch for sure...you'll be able to pick up swarms from there year after year I bet! Good job!

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

We survive together, or not at all!

I can beat that... last year I had five swarms in the same tree, and a sixth in the lilac bush beneath it.  The best part is, they weren't from my hives because I was there when they each flew in. ( A seventh swarm landed in another tree about 20 yards away, as well.) I'm thinking my girls are explaining how nice they have it here.  There has to be a bee tree nearby, somewhere, but I haven't had time to go searching. This year I'll be placing swarm traps to see if they'll simply move in on their own.

Nice.  I enjoy watching the bees do their parade into the box.

This one just might be my favorite one you've done & the one with the school kids last year.
