    when I arrived I found a swarm stuck to the side of 1 of the nucs, 1st I thought it was a mass of robbers trying to get in but after looking real close I found a queen, so I put her in a queen box and set her into a empty nuc and put it sideways ontop of the other nucs facing the rest of the swarm, they all started marching in so I added 3 wet large frames I had in the truck from my extracting, after they were all in I put it on another stand and checked the other nucs and the swarm didnt come from my yard:thumbsup:

    Good saying Lee! Good catch Zookeep! I set my bee tree stump back up yesterday, ready for next spring. Got me a good sized swarm back in March. Pays to have an empty place in or near the beeyard!
