Swarm Catching – 9

4/13/2016 We got a call to remove a small swarm in a water valve box next to the street in the Lake Park area.   It was a very small swarm with only around a thousand bees.   A small queen cup was seen but got damaged in the comb removal, so we will probably just combine this hive with another small one we currently have in the apiary.
