swarms - finally!
« on: May 07, 2011, 10:32:57 PM »
Well with all of the wet weather, our swarm season has been delayed about a week... until today.  Removed two swarms.  One the size o a grapefruit, the other probably about 5lbs of bees.  Really filled a 5 frame nuc!  these next few days might be busy!
