I have some small and some little bigger trees about 30 ft in front of my hives. Some of the swarms I have caught I know came from my yard. Have heard that a bee yard can also attract a swarm, not sure on that one, but most of the swarm I have caught were in or close to those trees. And yes I count all swarms caught.Joe
Absolutely! A swarm is a swarm. Some of the best swarms I've caught have been from my yards. I like those. Don't have to isolate them for observation.
