Was off work today running errands and had a first!
While traveling down a state road I hit an airborn swarm of bees with my truck! Had bees splattering across the windshield for a 30 yard stretch then nothing.
Turned right around and found them in the air. Stopped and hoped they would land in the tree line along the road but no such luck. Watched them fly over the trees and off into the woods.
Went back home and made a few nucs. Went inside and fell asleep in recliner to be awakened by the phone.
The caller was a man that I had removed two swarms for two days ago.
He had 2 more swarms in the same location and no hives on the property.
So I hived them and returned home back to the comfy recliner to tell this story to my Internet friends.
2 double swarms on the same trees in 2 days is rare enough but combine that with hitting an airborne swarm
With my truck in the same day?
Strange day indeed.
