I just got home and finished hiving this 3+/-lb swarm. I got the call last night at about 9:00pm about bees that came into a magnolia at about 4:00pm. It was 42F and the bees were clustered about 12 feet up. I vacuumed over half and then was able to shake the rest into my swarm bucket. I had a veil on for this one because of the cool weather. The good part was that when I shook the bees, all went into the bucket and none flew back up to the tree branch.
