Just had finished catching the swarm at home and making a screened bottom board when the phone rang for a swarm call. All the way up town to a large night club that had a swarm on an outside wall in the patio area. A big thanks to Randee for the call, she was excited that I came out to collect the swarm and was very interested in the bees. She was not afraid of them in the least, what a joy to do some up close education. Pointing out drones, the queen and the fact that most swarms are gentle, didn't even need my "bug suit" :mrgreen: Small swarm on the side of the brick wall, just about a foot off of the ground [attachment=4:1iqwdr7e]099.JPG[/attachment:1iqwdr7e] When I got there the queen was just sitting out on the patio with a few bees around her, easy enough to catch her [attachment=3:1iqwdr7e]101.JPG[/attachment:1iqwdr7e] Laid a small piece of cardboard on top of the frames to make a bridge for them to march across, at first they took off and then just quit. I put the caged queen on there and even some lemongrass oil but they were not having anything to do with it. Finally had to use some smoke and hive tool to place them in the box.

Just had gotten home and got another swarm call, drove all the out to find they had left a little earlier, oh well two easy swarms in one day.......I love it!!
