Folks, Just got a message from a friend in La Grande, OR and he has a swarm in his back yard. He is not a beekeeper and has a significant allergy to bee stings. If you happen to be near La Grande or know someone in the area that keeps bees, they would like the bees captured and saved if possible. Please contact me and I will share the location details. I've seen pictures and the swarm is of good size and on the ground (or roughly two feet off the ground) I'm doing this from afar in Utah... one would think it would be simple to find a home for the swarm!
