Not really a removal but....
We dropped off the bees from the smoke out we did the other day and were lucky enough to be there when a swarm moved in. We watched it come in from the south across a cow pasture and move in to an empty double nuc with drawn frames on one side. What a beautiful sight! I'll never tire of watching swarms!!

Went back the next day and put them in a double deep.......tons of bees! Since they had taken up in a box with drawn comb they had already filled the comb with the honey they had brought with them. They are starting out with 5 full frames of honey!

Really cool video.  I can't wait to be in the middle of a swarm in action like that. 
Hopefully the action I see will be into a hive and not out of one.   grin

Florida has a few rules about bees and numbers.     and queens.    and swarms.      grin

Good looking swarm.  It is great when the swarm comes to you.

I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

"Of course I can hear them, I'm standing right in the middle of them!" Classic stuff right there my friend.

Awesome footage & swarm!

Glad you had the camera rolling.

It's so cool that you two can be around bees as often as you are and still get such a thrill from an experience like this one...totally wonderful.

This was totally awesome, thrilling, exciting. I had a swarm move into one of my empty hives last spring and I wonder if it looked like this when it came in.  That was super fun to watch.

Thanks Scott
