Most times when people call and say they have bees, they say the swarm is huge. When I get there it is a handful of bees. This time it wasn’t just a handful. She told me they were in the smoker. She didn’t know how big they were, just that there seemed to be a lot of them. I knew they were big because of the activity. 1 cup will hold 900 bees. I must have scooped out at least a quart or more. When I got home I put them in a full sized hive because there were so many. We shall see how they do.
