this was a fun day.had 5 swarms ,the first swarm was at my bee yard at the hunting camp.i let this hive swarm and did a video of it swarming.i got 16 queen cells to make up some nucs.the second was in a subdivision where i got 2 other swarms in the same tree.the third  was in my orange tree and it was big.this is the one i got 6 queens from.while looking for the queens the fourth swarm came in and landed in the box with the other swarm.it was mass confusion but ended up with 8.2 lbs of bees that i put in 2 deeps.the fifth was on my back porch in some boxes that i hadn't cleaned yet from wax moth cocoons and they just moved right on in.hope yall enjoy the video   ........schawee

Very cool schawee, great job finding all those virgin queens. Those queens after being balled do they do ok?

Great video Schawee. This is one I won't forget. It's fantastic that you caught it on video.
I wonder how many hives the six queens came from? Would that be why they were balling her?

Great job Schawee.

Thanks for sharing it with us!

Great video Schawee. Thanks for sharing. Makes me eager for swarm season here in Oregon.
 @JP, Be sure you get some time sharing your red umbrella with Schawee, it would go good with the milkshake after a rough day doing a removal.  shocked Love watching the bickering beekeepers.
