noticed alot of bees flying in the street yesterday evening, and they piled into a ligustrum in the neighbors yard next to the street.  Shook them in a nuc and caged the queen.  she is a dark one, with no mark.  I assume its from a hive somewhere to the west.  I have been open feeding for a couple months now and have been noticing bees leaving the feeders and heading west and not to a hive I have.  I just recently went through the hives and marked all my queens and there were no queen cells.  The queen in this one was not marked.  I think this may be froma hive real close. soo, this is a little swarm that will probly get combined with a wad of bees this week.
