    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.

    Good job there Iddee!! Is this about the earliest swarm you have gotten in your area?

    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.
