Redwood City Swarm Rescue

This was a beautiful swarm high in a fruit tree along a sidewalk in RWC. Since nobody was home in the nearby homes to provide a power outlet for the bee vac, the best way to capture the swarm was to place an open nuke box below it and allow the bees to march in at their own pace. After an hour everybody was inside and the box relocated to their new home in our apiary.
