First swarm of the year. This one landed about 14’ off the ground. I placed a 5 gallon bucket under the ball of bees and shook the majority off the limb into the bucket. Then poured them into a bee box sitting on my truck. Took about 30 minutes before they settled down.

That's awesome!

How did you shake the limb? By hand standing on a ladder?

Yeah I was on a six foot ladder, should’ve used an eight. I placed the bucket so the ball was inside the bucket and then pushed very hard straight up. I dumped that group in the bottom box and then climbed back up to get the ones I missed the first time. I finally cut the limb off.

Moved them to their permanent location before daylight this morning. It was around 50 degrees so they were not flying. This was a huge swarm, close to 4 pounds of bees. $225 worth of bees around here.

Is this a good way to get the community involved in an Easter event?
