Swarm call not too far from the house this time. Melissa called and said she had a swarm down low in a bush and they needed to get gone before the neighbor sprayed them. They were in a small tree on the fence between the houses. Melissa's brother (I think) saw my add on craigs list so she gave me a ring, her sister was afraid I would turn out to be the craigs list killer :shock: .

[attachment=3:1kxsxnks]002.JPG[/attachment:1kxsxnks] [attachment=2:1kxsxnks]003.JPG[/attachment:1kxsxnks] after trimming out the swarm, Melissa said the bush was a goner and I could butcher it up as I pleased. [attachment=1:1kxsxnks]004.JPG[/attachment:1kxsxnks] I held the branch and Melissa clipped it off with the loppers, she was fearless after watching me stick my hands into the swarm. I wanted her to hold the branch and get a pic of her but she refused. [attachment=0:1kxsxnks]006.JPG[/attachment:1kxsxnks] The girls are getting settled in. Just got back from picking them up after dark and think I got every bee!
