    was at work and got the call, swarm bit bigger then a football hanging 8 feet off the ground 20 min away, had all the gear in the truck( for once) sweet catch, went back after dark and picked up the nuc and its heavy.( ok forumpost stalker have fun) this 1 was worth the 1k mark:thumbsup:, the younger guy on the right will be mentoring with me over the next few months in the yards and I plan on taking a frame of eggs from cone-o-bees and teaching him how to raise a nuc and after its up and running it will become his 1st hive, he has a bee tree in the yard where he rents a house, the old guy owns the property and said the hives been in the old tree for many years and I will be on call from now on for swarms.
