Got a call about 2PM to remove a swarm of bees.
I got there and the folks were scared to death.
The swarm was in a fence row that was covered with honeysuckle vines.
I set up the hive and shook the fence, the bees fell right into the bucket.
I put a ramp on the front of the hive with a white cloth on it.
I dumped the bees on the ramp and they marched right up into the hive like it was home.
Went back at sunset and now have the hive in my bee yard at the house.
It took about 5 minutes to get setup and put the bees in the hive.
I guess next time I ought to wear a veil and gloves.
Folks were taking bets the bees would eat me up.
Anyhow got my 1st swarm of the season.
