I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

More of a swarm "scrape" than shake. Smiley

Thanks for the video JP, still probably 3 weeks away from swarms here, good to get fired up.

Question, before you start and I see you putting your palm up to the swarm to gauge their reaction, what exactly are you looking for and what does their reaction tell you?

Thanks.    .....Don

Nice catch JP!  Thanks for sharing.  I know it's finally Spring when JP puts up his 1st swarm catch video.

I always enjoy your videos, JP.  The truck tire removal was excellent, too.  It never ceases to amaze me how you can work in the bees without protection and get few stings, you've definitely been blessed with a gift.

I've had several swarms up here already (~50 miles south of Montgomery, AL)...frustratingly they've all been from my hives.  Undecided 

Best wishes and keep catchin'em!!!!

These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".
