I’ve been way too busy to chase swarms lately but a nearby opportunity came up today thanks to a local Arborist who loves to save honey bees so I thought I would check it out. It was a swarm of bees in Mountain View which is just blocks away from my parent’s place. It was a good size swarm probably about 2 pounds of bees. They were active today when I got there this morning to check on them. Well, they sure were active as when I went back in the early afternoon to hive them they were gone already.
