Swarm 5/6/21

Post by Jacobs »

I picked up a nice 3+lb swarm late this afternoon on W. Gate City Blvd. It was clumped on the branch of a tree about 7 feet up. I backed the truck up, stood in the bed, and was able to shake the bees into my swarm bucket. I buckled them in on the passenger side of the truck, drove them home and put them in a hive. A few people on the way got to see around 100 bees crawling all over the inside of the windows.
