Another swarm call-out

Today I finally got a call from the local neighborhood of a swarm in a backyard.  I arrived to find a small swarm clinging to a low branch.  I placed the basket under it and clipped the branch and wah-lah it was done.  Or so I thought.  As I waited for the flying bees to collect in the basket, they decided that the chain link fence was better.  I tried brushing them into the basket but no luck.. It was back home to get the Bee Vac.  Most of the bees had left the basket for the fence so I just decided to vac them all up.  Half an hour later they were secure and off I went to put them in my hive.  Watch Video:              That's four hives now where I had none earlier.  Later
