Just got back from collecting this +/- 2lb swarm about 5 miles from the house. I declined a swarm yesterday. The call came from South Boston, Va. My 4 strongest hives at the house have gone into swarm mode. I was able to locate the queen and move each of them them and a goodly number of bees into 2 nuc box set ups. I hope it is enough to keep the home hives from swarming.
