Friday Night at Lake Edwards
OK, I'm on my way to drop off Aaron for the EHS Band Concert when Dawn calls to report another swarm call....really!?!? I returned the call and spoke with Virgil Niebrugge who lives with his wife, Mary, on his family's old farmstead at Lake Edwards Subdivision. After the band concert I headed over with my parents to capture the swarm in the dark. It was a large swarm hanging about 8 foot off the ground on a trellis. We also had an audience of several neighbors who wanted to see what was taking place. The swarm was very gentle and filled over a third of my vacuum box. I plan on installing the swarm into a hive box tomorrow at the farm. I hope to post photos from one of the neighbors what came out to see what all the commotion was about.
