picked up swarm #4 about two weeks ago. i didnt think to take a picture of it - as the swarm cluster was hanging off a garbage can wheel and it was raining and - well i just forgot. but not more than 5 feet away from the cluster was a bunch of bees in a nice knot hole in an oak tree.

there really isnt a way to get them out, without damage and the home owner was happy to let them stay, but its cool to see the bees in a tree. the owner says that this hole has housed many hives over the years, but they eventually die off - probably not big enough for a critical number of bees to survive the winter.
