Got home from church yesterday just in time to see one of my hives throw a swarm. Wouldn't you know it they clustered about 25' up in a small oak next to my hives. So I put to use all those hours of reading everyone's posts on beemaster. I read somewhere that if you can throw a rope near the cluster and pull a frame of comb near them they will break cluster (with help
) and move to the comb, and that's exactly what they did. Found and caged the queen gave them a frame of honey and of course everybody else got jealous. Came home today and it was robbed out, 2 frames of honey gone in less than 4 hours.
I did learn a lot tho and had a lot of fun.
