Bailey: I am in complete and total agreement! It's happening early!! :shock: Already done two swarm removals here in the last 2 weeks. Drones are flying strong! Citrus is in bloom, mango bloom has already passed...it's going to be an early and hopefully booming season! I was forced (by the bees) to do a December walk away split, which now has a strong laying queen. I've got boxes and frames built, and ordering more supers on Monday. It's gonna be FUN! X:X :cheer: Think of your building time like the last minute shopping before Christmas! Enjoy the 'relaxing' times!! :lau: Best to you and your bees! Hope your bee year is an excellent one!
