Nice catch Schawee, I wouldn't of thought it was possible with this little cold snap we're having, looks like confirmation to what Bailey's been predicting...an early spring.
I have my two Nuc boxes that I had my bees in until a week ago out as swarm traps. I realize that's pretty much a long shot, but I'm hoping for some beginners luck to catch one.
I made 4 more 6 frame Nuc boxes (mediums) this weekend for "just in case" future use...splits, swarm traps, etc. Obviously, they're lacking any bee smell, and as a newbie, I'm lacking old comb, but I do have lemon grass oil. Considering all that, I'm wondering if its worth putting them out as swarm traps? Any thoughts, opinions, or suggestions are appreciated.
