Nice picture, are they from one of your hives?

I don't know if I should say "good for you" or "I'm sorry your bees are swarming"
I guess both, I'm glad you caught them and I'm sorry they don't want to stay in the box!
Everyone has an opinion, this is mine.

No, not mine. They were from a hive at Locust&honey's house. He had all he wanted, so gave these to me.

Thanks, L&H.

No problem....you helped ME out!!! Plus the bees got a good home as well...win-win. I had 2 more swarms today!!!! Swarm count so far this year is 10...I think...I lost count after 8...I think :roll: I am trying catch these and "re-supply" my hives that I already have....so far so good....I just hate squashing a new queen!!!! But I do want some honey and it takes lot's of bees to do that.

And another swarm today from Locust & Honey, Wally got two queens out of that one too.

I was bored after lunch and just finishing my last meeting and Wally called and asked if I wanted to help, lots of fun, and great meeting new people.

The day didn't end there, off to Rob after that, new thread for that one - as plenty of pics

That looks amazing. So, did you just pick them up? I really would like to see this in person or on a video. I wonder if youtube has it or maybe Zulu can post it on his blog.

I did not video this time , but will make a point next time.

Have a bunch more pics in my albums. Was so late last night that my blog was not really written up, I just dumped the pics..... I will do it more justice tonight.
