This was about a #2.5 swarm my friend called and said come and get-em.
I forgot to take a pic before, so this is what was left on the branch after I shook them.A half hour later they had all found their way into their new home.Tonight they get to go for a ride in the Isuzu box van.

Neat idea for a "hive" stand! If a guy made a long one up for a half dozen nucs, no bending! :thumbsup:
Good deal!! Nothing like catching a swarm, especially the first one of the season.
That is a dandy hive stand, might make one of those up to use doing cut outs.
I coppied it from a Target tile saw stand.You can add a sink hole cutout and it's a table.
My swarm trap after 3 days.
Did you catch a swarm or are those just curious bees checking things out?
Yes, it's a swarm.Last year I caught 4 or5 in that same spot.I put a screw in the grout joint and just kept trading traps out till july.
Here we've been dry for about a month. It's refreshing to see that beautiful fresh Oregon green. Congrats on your swarm catching successes.:thumbsup:
My neighbor down the road let me put a trap at his house,it helps that he has a bee tree in his front yard.
Right on! It's becoming one of my favorite things to do for sure...
It's not quite deadliest catch, but it is additive for sure.:thumbsup:
Wow! way to go. Thanks for sharing those pictures.
There's NOTHING else in beekeeping like the pure enjoyment of catching a swarm.:thumbsup:
A friend called last night about 7with a swarm
in Newberg, it was dusk when I shook-em so I left the equipment there.
I caught one in a swarm trap today.
JB, you'rer on your way. The next one is just a matter of time. :thumbsup:
Hived another one last night.
We didn't even have to shake them,they just walked right on in.Easy as pie...............mm pie.
