Spring swarm capture

I’ve added two swarms to my apiary this season. With the two (out of three) hives which survived the winter, I’ve got a total of four hives up and running now. They are doing well in West Sonoma County. The most recent swarm was at an apartment complex in Santa Rosa, about fifteen feet high on branch. Sonic.net’s bucket truck made it a quick and easy job to put them in a swarm box for transport.
