Chuffed that I managed to catch these. I was on my way in the car to a swarm call when I drove through a cloud of bees. Spotted the cluster on a bush 2ft from a busy pedestrian area (the give away was the flailing shreiking pedestrian).

Took a couple of hours but I think I caught 3kg of bees! Barely fit in my skep.

Photos to follow later... work now.

Found a swarm on my way to get a swarm, and also got a phone call for a third swarm while I was dealing with the first one. All a bit much for one lunch break! I'm back at work now and hoping that when I get done the bees at the Junior School will still be there to collect.

 
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
