Bee Swarm II

What has eagle eye J spotted now?
 Would you believe another swarm of bees!
 We were told we must have a very strong queen.
 Our bee man didn't have another hive ready so he sent some else that had lost their bees over the winter.
 Same procedure as before but these were a little higher up.  The bees are looking for a place to go and are happy to go in the box.
We were then told that bees not counting the hive sell for $75.  That's $150 we've given away in the last 2 weeks.  Guess I'll be reading up on beekeeping so maybe we'll be ready if they swarm again.  Beekeeper #2 said there was a saying "a swarm in May is worth a load of hay but a swarm in June just let them go."   I'm not so sure he got the wording right on that second part.
