Don't panic it was not our bees that swarmed.....We received a call from my brother saying he had a swarm in is back yard. I went to investigate.
Suite and Smoke for me. Ok ready lets cut the branch and shake.
Well this story does not end well, no one got hurt but I failed a my first attempt to catch a swarm. I tried shoveling them like Jones Bee store told me, I tried brushing them in to a box I could catch a few but most just pushed to the other side of the fence. I was puzzled so I set up my newly bought and painted hive with sugar water in it hoping they would just migrate in. Ten minutes later as we sat and watched the wind picked up and like a twister the all took flight and were gone:(
