Konasdad. Well, that is going to be your day for the adventure of your lifetime, good for you, I bet that once you have done this, you are gonna be hooked. Look at JP, he just can't stop....hee, hee, :) :) :)
Kathy, you had a great day too. I love to hear the stories of the cutouts and swarm catching that my forum friends are doing. I can't wait to catch a swarm, if I get the chance to this year. I have 8 colonies that have overwintered and are going gangbusters. Of course, I don't want them to swarm, I will do everything I can to prevent it. But, maybe, just maybe, one of my neighbours might have a swarm issue. I have two beekeepers that are within a couple of kilometres from me. That is all that I know about. But there are others some distances away. And I have friends and relatives that know that I would surely come and catch a swarm, should one arrive at their place. Ohhhh, summertime, summertime, oh, summer, summertime. I can't wait for some warm weather. We haven't had any. Just one day a few days ago, where it was beautiful, sunny, the top temperature hit 24 C (that be 75F), but we are back to the cloudy, rainyish weather, temperature right now sitting at 6C (42F), yesterday the high was 10C (50F), so we were lucky to have that warm, warm day. Eeeks.
Have the most beautiful, greatest day that you can have. Cindi
