Got a call about a swarm in the hills NW of Banks. Owner said that bees had clustered on the base of a Christmas tree. Got there to find that they had gathered on the small low limbs of the tree and the limbs were bent down by the weight. Looked like a big swarm and I suspected that one deep would not accommodate the swarm. I ended up making the 40 mile round trip to Hillsboro for the extra deep.
Pretty easy one to collect...just shook each branch over the box. I will return in a few days to bring it home.
