Swarms are Here!!!

Several of our members have been called to collect swarms in the local area. President, John Hartmann, was in the local paper collecting a swarm from a parked car in the Belk Shopping Center.  Art and Nancy Howard collected bees from a dairy barn.  This link has great pictures of the Howard's adventure. Dairy Barn Bee Removal  

Swarms are fun to watch draw out foundation.  I recently caught a swarm which we put in a deep hive body.  Within 5 days the foundation was almost completely draw.  Those girls were ready to work!!
