Double Queen Balling Swarm

Got a call to pick up a swarm in the middle the street in San Mateo today. Usually when a swarm is on a flat surface that’s a bad sign and it is queenless, but in this case there were two queens being actively balled, a.k.a. killed. So I vacuumed up the bees and caged the two queens. We’ll see what happens…..
