    Last summer Jeni Ann called and had DH and youngest son come help catch a swarm. Yesterday she called again and she and DH caught another one...why do they always hang out so HIGH in the spindly branches? 002.JPG

    Did your DH not have any protective clothing on except for bee hat and gloves?
    I don't think I have ever seen a swarm, although I have seen them on local TV.
