    This was last weekend. I was able to capture them with G3's swarm capturing machine. So far they have stayed but I'm not saying I'm successful yet. I haven't had any luck keeping one of my own captured swarms. If they are still there this weekend I'll be happy. The final ball of bees was very large. Nearly half of the 7 gal bucket was full, and I dumped smaller clusters 3 more times into the hive before stopping.
