    Just got a call on this swarm that is setting up house on the outside of this corner of the house. They had started building 4 pieces of new comb. Guess due to the heat?? Tom

    Once they settle down on combs and the queen starts laying, they're not really a swarm any more. Capturing them becomes a bigger project--particularly their willingness to cooperate with moving is reduced and they are no longer as docile as a swarm. Follow Perry's advice and don't delay.:chased:

    Once you get the bees and comb removed you just might want to look inside of the soffit just to make sure they did not run and hide inside while you were doing the cut out. The queen likes to run and hide.

    Called the folks and told them it will be a bit before I can get back up there. The bees are still there and have not gotten into the attic. Will watch the soffit when I take them, thanks for the heads up. Tom

    I'm really surprised to hear they are still there, and they have not left or gone inside. Actually, they may be inside and what they are seeing is a beard. Is it really hot where you are right now?
