Hive Swarm in NE Guilford County 3/21/17

One of my hives swarmed Tuesday about 25 feet up onto the middle of a tree limb just above the hive. Rob Jacobs brought his bee vac over, climbed into my father's bucket truck, and swept them up, including the queen (thankfully).

:shock: Wow, congratulations on capturing that swarm! How heavy was that bucket after collecting all those bees?
