Some swarm box activity......we shall see.
« on: March 18, 2020, 04:24:44 pm »
3/18/20......fair amount of activity around the trap today.  It gets more ramped up than this and then dies down a little then ramps up again. Fingers crossed. They've done this once this year already.  Heres to hoping.

Kwalt your right. It's got me a little excited for sure. The only thing I'm wandering about is about 25 or 30 yards away I've got some old comb from last year I took out of the freezer and letting the bees clean up. Theres 50 or so bees on it right now. In the swarm box though is nothing but an old dark frame of brood comb and some lemon grass oil.

Thank yall for the good luck wishes. Today is supposed to be sunny and 80 degrees so maybe today will be the day.  What do yall think about the old honey frames ive got about 30 yards away? Reckon these bees could be from them? Cleaning the honey frames yesterday was about 50 or 75 bees...in the swarm trap is only an old dark brood comb. And a drop or 2 of lemongrass oil...No honey what so ever.
