I'm a beekeeper. I have 8 colonies right now. 3 of those are swarms I captured this spring. I'm getting ready for the second honey extraction this year. I'm hoping it will be in the 10 gallon range.
This is one of the swarms I caught.

Quoted from Tomahawkjim:

How did you get them off the tree?

Take a wallpaper brush, and brush them into a bee hive.

This is extraction 3 for this year. I have harvested a bit over 14 gallons this year. I got almost got 5 gallons today. I'm going into 3 more hives next weekend. That might not finish the spring harvest. There is like 400 acres of soybeans 2000 feet east. Then you get the dark fall honey.

Here they are working the sticky frames gathering leftover honey.

Quoted from Mbecker:

Year 3 here - haven’t had success going over winter yet. Wife Caught a swarm last year so we had 2 hives. Just 1 this year - curious what others are doing for mite treatment?

I use screen bottom boards with oil traps. Used cooking oil in an aluminum baking sheet. As an added benefit it will drown a lot of small hive beetles as well. On the down side the bees drop pollen they cannot recover.

I harvested yesterday, got 12 gallons of honey. The honey is filtering as I play pinball.
