Got a call right before I went on my lunch break from a very frantic city worker wanting someone to remove a swarm NOW! Decided that was a good way to spend my lunch break so drove home, grabbed an empty nuc and stapled some #8 hardware cloth on the entrance. Went down to find a basketball sized swarm 4' off the ground on a branch 1.5" diameter. Doesn't get better than that! A quick shake and most of the cluster was in the box, quite a few in the air and after setting the box down the fanning started and the clump that missed the box started marching into the box. Spend 10 minutes visiting with the nice ladies in the office across the street waiting on things to calm down and put the lid on and went home with my 3rd colony! I guess there is 4-5 lbs there, should be a nice hive. Questions: I left the hardware cloth over the entrance after I left them in the bee yard thinking they were well fed and a few hours in the hive would get them to accept it. Can I leave them in the nuc until they get some frames drawn out? I don't have any drawn frames for them so they'll have to draw their own comb.
