Yesterday a swarm call was received from a couple in Mountain View. We grabbed the swarm kit and headed out. Sure enough this was a huge swarm — likely 4-5 lbs of bees! It must have originated from a beekeeper’s colony beehive or super colony in a tree or attic. We set out multiple swarm traps but they didn’t want to budge. The bee vac was dispatched and the bees carefully vacuumed up and into their new home.
