I forgot to take a pic before, so this is what was left on the branch after I shook them.A half hour later they had all found their way into their new home.Tonight they get to go for a ride in the Isuzu box van.

Alright!
:thumbsup: :yahoo: :clapping::Dancing:

Neat idea for a "hive" stand! If a guy made a long one up for a half dozen nucs, no bending! :thumbsup:

Good deal!! Nothing like catching a swarm, especially the first one of the season.

That is a dandy hive stand, might make one of those up to use doing cut outs.

I coppied it from a Target tile saw stand.You can add a sink hole cutout and it's a table.

Yes, it's a swarm.Last year I caught 4 or5 in that same spot.I put a screw in the grout joint and just kept trading traps out till july.

Here we've been dry for about a month. It's refreshing to see that beautiful fresh Oregon green. Congrats on your swarm catching successes.:thumbsup:
