Waveeater, of this forum, picked up this swarm tonight, as it is in the photo. I don't think he cheats fair.   :tongue:   :cheesy:

The buckets came with honey in them, but had been cleaned for some time before this happened.

I cheat to. sense I can't do cutouts right now because of my arm and the fact that I have to go thru it all over again. I was getting the wife stuff ready to go to atl to the docs this morning and when I was taking the tanks out to the car I heard buzzing. I followed the sound over to a stack of hive boxes next to the edge of the parking area and found a very very large swarm moving into a row of the stacked hives. yeppy now I will just let them settle for a few days and then check and move them. man swarm catching is ruff. :cool: :tongue:

 Congratulations John.
Our swarms here stopped 2 weeks ago. I suspect it was the weather.
