Guess I better start supering now then.
Don't want to lose out on a good flow!
Thanks for the info. 
Will do a full swarm trap line check tomorrow.  I know of the one but I could have more

I think the nectar coming in is mainly from blackberry because most of the pollen in the hives is grey. A lot of the cow pastures around my house was abandoned this year so they are just choked full of blackberries  as far as you can see. There is also a lot of thistle in the pastures. Each thistle flower has about 10 bees digging in them.  Its starting out to be a great year. Now i just need to stop them from swarming before the tallow flow. I put supers on about two weeks ago but they are not putting nectar in them yet. They are storing alot in the brood chamber. huh

Ok. I'm not late again.   I'm headed out to run the trap line.
Hope to return with good news:
