Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

Hey Scott.  I was walking out with smoker in hand when they went off.  Traded smoker for a camera for a bit then went on to making nucs

Had a good day.  Made 5 nucs and with the swarm that's 6. Not a bad few hours work.

I'm waiting on swarm calls to start big time !

Good video Bailey.  Nice having swarm down where it is easy to get to.  Most of mine last year were 10 to 15 feet.  Did have 3 in a fig tree.  All three in same tree in less than 24 hours.  Yeap got to rambling again.  Good luck with your bees.

Fun Fun! You can always tell who the beekeepers are in a crowd - since they're the ones who run into the middle of a swarm. (Good call grabbing the camera, too.)

Nice set of videos Bailey. I have had bees for 3 years now and I still have not seen a hive exit for a swarm. My wife was in to house last year when the observation hive, in our the closed -in-patio, started to swarm. She could hear it in the whole house and went out there to see it exit. It stayed just outside because the week before I had switched to the QE opening knowing it was going to swarm. I ended up spliting out 2 of the 3 frames to a new hive. I just split the 2 frame hive again this week.

Great capture and nice nuc box!  We've got another 4-6 weeks before we can expect swarming here.  Still fun to watch someone else having some fun capturing a swarm.
