Got called for two swarms today, both turned out to be large. The first one I took pics of and will upload a little later, the other I forgot to take pics of. The first one was big enough to fill 2 medium boxes to the brim with bees, and I had to add a third box as soon as I got them to the outyard. The second swarm filled about a box and a half. Both people said the bees swarmed before the storms rather than after them as I thought they might have, so that was interresting. The first swarm was totally docile, but when I gave them a frame of brood/eggs from an existing hive to make sure they didn't leave they fought with the bees on that frame (I forgot to grab a newspaper on my way up to the outyard so I didn't have a way of slowly introducing them). The second swarm seemed dry and cranky, but they immediately accepted the frame of brood and eggs from the other hive without any fighting. Go figure. Oh, and my outyard is now finally, FINALLY starting to build up... I really shouldn't have left those hives on the mtn. last winter, if they had started out west then got moved to the mtn. at the end of the nectar flow out west they'd have built up by now and would get a whole extra month of nectar flow. Oh well... live and learn.
