Was in the process of removing an open hive in a live oak tree and got the cal of this swarm 5 mins away and took me only 15 min to shake and bake.  grin Not a big one but one as well. Got nine more to catch up with Bailey.  Smiley

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

Good going Blanc.  Haven't seen one yet here this year, several last year.  Those down low on a limb are good ones.  Had four last year up 10 to 15 ft. not quite as easy but not hard.  In the tallest one couldn't get a ladder there, so threw a rope over limb and shook em down.  Good catching to all

This one was about 3 ft high and just got there that morning and was looking for my box to settle in.  grin Got to love it. My first swarm last year was the same size and I put it in a top bar hive before I adapted to langs and they are still there. Hive is almost 4 ft wide and plan on making some nucs from it this week coming.
