3rd Swarm 2013
« on: March 28, 2013, 07:48:40 PM »






OK for those who may think this is a duplicate post on last swarm I did this was the same people I got a call from the other day and they told me more bees. The after swarm of a nearby hive split in two when they cal but when I got there they said they combined in the same spot I got the last swarm from. It was almost the same size and put them in an eight frame med nuc. Anticipation is high for more!  :-D

Still waiting on the first here.   Y'all killing me with all those swarms down there.   I have gotten multiple swarms from the same branch several times.   All that bee swarm scent brings them in.

Its coming Allen. We are fortunate to have earlier spring temps down here is all. All of a sudden I need more nucs and could meet my goal of 20 hives after all.

Good job

Bailey the size of those two swarms I believe they will get cramped in the next couple weeks and have to give em some more room. Size of a basketball. Not sure what that would translate to lbs but they had some weight to them. Two out of the same hive that's in the neighbors shed just 15 ft away.

Love me some dcoats medium nucs. Light effective for queen rearing ,swarm traps, swarm boxes for splits
Comb storage etc.
and the cost is the best thing. 
Thanks again dcoats!
