Menlo Park Swarm Rescue

Rather than a pure reproductive swarm, this was most likely a hive absconding for some reason. It started with me clipping the branch holding the swarm and placing them above a nuc box to move into, but since there was old comb that contained food stores, a robbing frenzy was triggered and the swarm took off. Luckily they moved to an adjacent tree and were easy to grab then move into the nuc box offsite.
