    I just picked up a a swarm about 3/4 the size of a football today. I have never had a swarm call this late in the year. It was on a friends property north of town. They dont have a chance of making it this late so I will combine with one of my existing hives.

    sounds good. I had a couple of swarms last year at this time, they couldn't hold off the robbers, queen died, etc. Easier to just combine maybe run a 2 queen hive.
