Had another swarm call early today(8th swarm call so far this year).
I was tired and didnt want to really go until he told me the swarm was sooo big it broke the branch!!! :shock:
I grabbed a box and went to see a nice big swarm. :mrgreen:
On the road there I saw a fellow beek AKA "Muleman" so I had him follow me to the house that was just off the highway. We found the broken branch and bee's just touching the ground.
I picked up the branch and the notorious "Muleman" placed the box under the bee's and wacked the branch. They fell in and gathered real nice. Then Muleman took off to gather yet another swarm he was working on!!!
Time to go home and build up MORE frames!!! :roll:
