Today, Dawn & I received a call from my old friend Terry Hopper who reported a small swarm from his wild bee hive in a tree on his property. So, before dinner we drove out to check it out. After a few minutes of discussion and pursuation I had Terry suited up to capture his first hive of bees.
Here is the small swarm hanging on a branch about 50 feet from the mother hive.
Terry & Larry are getting ready to shake the bees into the traveling nuc box.
