I will be putting a few out next weekend. I'm seeing A LOT of fresh nectar in the hives right now. Lots of plants blooming ( hen bit, maple, clovers, dandelion)   Cant be  much longer before we start seeing swarms.

I saw my first blackberry bloom today.  Swarms are coming!   And they will
Be early.
But if this pattern follows last years early spring the first few swarm
Will be Small.  

When the main flow comes on they should get bigger.
( jp's observation ).

I will be putting out one or two more this afternoon. 
I love trapping!
