Was wondering when I would get my first swarm, and it was this morning. Last time the golf course called they had left before I got there, they didn't call for days. This time it was noticed and they called right away. Second swarm from the same tree this year. Is that unusual?
Anyhow they were nice and low on a shrub branch about 18x6" conical shape, I guess about 3 pounds of the calmest bees I have ever experienced. Pretty cool, just snipped and set the whole thing right into a super and closed it up, didn't even get a mess flying around that way.
They are currently in the bee yard cleaning their new home and orienting. It lived up to my expectations and was a cool event. More feral bees, yahoo
