The One that Got Away--Swarm 4/17/17

Post by Jacobs » Mon Apr 17, 2017 11:57 am

My strongest hive at the house just issued a large swarm. I had given it additional supers right along, but I guess I wasn't able to entice them to stay. No amount of "tanging" could convice them to cluster low. They are in a neighbor's tree about 35-40 feet up (my best guess). I wish them well.
