    Not counting the one caught and given to me last Saturday. Don't know where it came from. It landed in a tree in my yard, but the only hives there are 2 new nucs and the swarm from last Sat. They all seem to have all the bees they had before. Must be from a wild hive or some beek in the area.

    Glad to hear you got a swarm!!

    You seem to be a couple of weeks ahead of us on the blooms so maybe a couple of weeks till we see some swarms, I'm ready.

    I got a swarm call last night. Too bad it was from a guy 5-6 hrs away!!!! luckily found a guy on a site that was close! Ended up being a basketball sized swarm in SE Kansas! Did nt know if Riverrat was close or further up north? It was at least an hour from good ol Bullseye
