Vermmy35 Nikon coolpix L20     It was a rush job had to grab stuff and run. It filled up two 8 frame medium box's with 8 frames in each box. The guy said he gets at least 5 swarm's a year and he would give me a call. It was at an organic cranberry bog. The swarm's come from a guy that pollinates the bog's. he just re queened all of the hive's he had there. I got a brand new queen with this swarm grin I seen that cone and had to do some thing with it I know it ain't no umbrella OK parasol but hey it did the job grin

So Irwin, since we are neighbors...not quite right across the street, but still SO-OR neighbors, how late will you still get swarms?  I have a swarm trap that I didn't put out because I thought swarm season was over?  Obviously, I'm not accurate with that idea. 

So, in the Pacific NW, when does swarm season start and end?

In my area May June July and some times August. Where about are you?

Roseburg.  So, is it worth still attempting to set swarm traps?  Obviously, you just caught one, so they must still be in the mood.

Why not worth a try if you do get a swarm you will have to feed it to make sure it has plenty to make it through winter.

I can't wait to see the red white and blue together. 

You are going to have to paint the old hive.   Those bees are going to strike if the housing is not up with the neighborhood.
