Busy day today. Just after scouting the first cutout, got a call for an easy swarm. About 4 feet off the ground. Backed the truck under it and one shake and they were in the box.

About the earliest I have gotten, but there have been 3 or 4 in the last week or two that I have heard about. Earliest season in the last 10 anyway. Normal is last week in March to 2nd week in April.

Hive bodies before I get on the swarm
List. Wow, this is exciting!

Awesome Iddee. I was just telling G3 today that I have never even seen a swarm before. I can't wait for that rush of excitement being around something like that.

Today a fellow came by and wanted the nuc more than I did, so it went bye-bye and my bank account looks a bit better. :D

Can you sell 'em all that fast Iddee? You seem to catch/cut/trap quite a few, and yet I recall you don't keep many of them long?

I could sell 500 a year if I could produce them.

I also give away 10 to 20 each year. Like the one I gave Zulu for the boy scouts this week.
