Got a call from a land owner last evening saying there was a swarm in the grass next to a fence post two paddocks away from my hives, So I grabbed some gear and during the drive to the farm the drizzle turned to rain then drizzle again. What else did he say? oh yeah the cows are in that paddock but you can just drive in they'll be all right .
Sure enough there were a pile of damp bees in the grass by a post, I picked up some bees and put them into a nuc box and put a cardboard ramp from bees to box and it wasn't long and the bees started walking into the box queen and all.
Just remembered photos are on cell phone.
