Amazing Swarm season
« on: May 25, 2016, 05:05:44 pm »
This is my first year making a real attempt at swarm capture....and its been an educational and hectic season. I put out 10 traps and then one in my back yard near my home apiary site. As of my check this morning (3 i have to go get) I have caught a swarm in every single location and multiples at several.....18 swarms to date and we still have a month left...it has had me scrambling to make space and work out deals for out-yards but I am one happy beek  :grin:

Way to go Jeff.
It has been pretty good for me also. My bees are at my farm including 6 that were swarms and I caught 2 swarms in my back yard here in town in the last 10 days. Both are building very nicely.
