I got a call today about a swarm in a bush only 10 miles away. I was just pumped to do my first cut out and get a new hive started so I got my stuff ready and went to the sight. There was a softball size swarm i a lilac bush about 4 foot off the ground. As i has removing the swarm the man there told me that the swarm was alot bigger but that he had sprayed them earlier. Who is that stupid to spray the bees and then call to have them removed. Pissed me off. My question is what are the chances for the remaining bees to servive. Also i was the one that had the post last fall on bees in block wall. The hive that moved into the old bee boxes wintered over and are as strong as ever. Thanks for all your feedback on that.
