Art Hall, a buddy bee remover and member of the Santa Clara Bee Guild phoned me this afternoon asking if I wanted to go pick up a swarm in Los Altos since it’s so close to me. I was only 5 minutes away so I swung by to check it out but didn’t have all my gear with me to catch them. So I left to get my truck and equipment. As I was going back Deborah, the homeowner, called and said the swarm is no longer there. I guess I missed yet another good swarm this year!
