Bee Swarm Removal Santa Barbara

I thought it was a bit early for bee swarms, but the rain last week must have enticed these bees to swarm out.  It was a nice sized ball that I swept into a box.  After letting them settle for 45 minutes, I picked up the box and will rehive them in a Langstroth at sunrise.  I'm going to wait until morning because it is now dark and foggy and I think it will be easier on the bees not to disturb them again this late.  In the morning they'll have a box with wax foundation, two swarm lures, and a mason jar feeder with sugar water.  Hopefully this will keep them happy!!!

A nice looking soccer ball size swarm!
