Its Easter Sunday, Its been a long week, I have lots of frames to build I'm at 46 colonies now and if I can get my butt moving there are three swarms I know of for the taking right now.

One is gold as they are in a trap I left at a customer's house last yr which we caught 2 in last yr. One is in a small tree uptown new Orleans and the other is in Houma, about 30-35 minutes from me.

Decisions vs laziness vs being worn out from a long week.  grin

Buck up there kiddo, before you know it it'll be winter and you'll be twiddling your thumbs again! I've had to all but stop my day job with how crazy the swarms have been already this year. I picked up 3 last week and had a cut out just yesterday. Had to order 2500 unassembled frames from Dadant for pick up next week...seems they're way behind on assembled ones.

I'm really looking forward to kickin' back a little at Bud's!

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Thumbs up to you, JP. Remember to have fun expanding, often we forget.

I'm kicking butt this spring catching swarms, but I'm not ready to get bigger so I need to  sell off *alot* of hives and nucs this spring.

JP , I really enjoyed the photos . Nice to see some one else that gets in to a mess of bee's.
I ordered a cypress hive for the yard in town. (Vanity Hive )
need to wield on the trailers and fit box's on them , so i can move them around.
I was down last year ,trying to make up for it.
