Swarm away!

Friday July 27 at 3:30 PM our hive Tylissos swarmed. They stayed thirty feet or so in that alder until today. It took them four days to make up their minds! At 1:30 they finally started moving. I was at work but Ted reports that he followed them. They went down the creek a ways. He lost them in a yard, but a helpful homeowner permitted him to poke around to try to find them. He didn’t turn them up. He left his phone number in case someone sees them. Beyond those homes are a lot of county woods, so they may have settled into a tree out there. We’ve got a lot of bees out there somewhere this summer.
