Oregon beekeeper gets a swarm

Bill in Oregon, who first got in touch with us last month, has now expanded his skills.

It's me again. I just caught my first swarm! Hurray!

The bees seem to be swarming a lot at the moment here in Oregon. We're finally getting some warm and dry weather. I actually got 2 calls from my Craigslist post in the one day, just 10 minutes apart. I also heard of a 3rd swarm as well but it had moved on.

Since I was really only looking for 1 swarm and the first one was easier to get to, I let someone else take the 2nd.

Lesson learned in this trip: put gloves on. Here's some video, stings and all.
