« on: April 08, 2008, 03:40:46 PM »
hey yall,it been an busy weekend.i think the swarm weather has finally hit north mississippi.my two mentors have slap wore me out.we caught three medium swarms sat and five on sunday afternoon.they had enough equipment to keep all of them.most of them came from their hives that were way over crowded.but two were wild ones from i dont know where.we suspect water level drove them out of where they were staying.(some flooding in our area)i was able to see what drone cells and queen cells look like.after reading everything i have it was cool to finally see what this stuff looks like.sorry no pics they kept me hopping.bill

Hey Bill,

Don't you love the days when you work your butt off and at the end of the day realize you have a few more hives then you had when you started? I love seeing what I have caught coming to life inside the hives and drawing out the comb eventually becoming my adopted bee daughters. Love it.
