Glad you found someone to take them with all the obstacles honey bees have now a ways. One of the most interesting experiences I had on my internship was being able to go with a bee keeper for a day. He supplied all the local honey for us and had hives set up in multiple farmer's fields. I managed to get stung even with a suit on but they never seemed to bother him.This was just a swarm looking for a new hive location. This wouldn't have been that location, just 3 feet off the ground and by a busy walk. Bee keepers collected it pretty quick and easy and gave it a better home. Was interesting to see it all happen. This was their tenth swarm collected in 4 days. Said mine was small 7-8 thousand bees.
