Los Altos Bee Removal – Rescuing Small Bee Swarm

Saturday after the kids basketball and baseball games, Dad and I were about to get start on our hive maintenance when we received a call from a Los Altos residence about a honey bee swarm that just landed in a bush about six feet off the ground. Packed up our swarm catching kit and off we went.

My Dad held the box and I shook the bees into the box. Caught the queen, well, after three tries as this queen is super fast and small. She is the same size as the worker bees and definitely a new born. Caged her and picked up the bees at dark.
