#12 and #13 today
« on: March 18, 2013, 10:16:31 PM »
The northern folks are going to want to shoot me for this but, :evil:
Today swarms # 12 and 13 went into their boxes :piano:

One was a swarm call about 20 miles away and another in a swarm trap. 
I think I have another one in the trap but didn't want to pull it down till tomorrow to be sure it wasn't just scouts.  So I will probably be reporting # 14 tomorrow but they don't count till they are sitting on the hive stand!

Looks like your fast catching up Shawee. Jp has been doing good too.   Now poor ole Emil. Not so much. 
Don't think he has caught his first of the year yet.
Starting to feel bad for him. 
I hung another trap line today in the area where I hit the airborne swarm with my truck. 
Should pay off well but we shall see

Sorry to our northern brethren suffering in the white crap.  What they call that junk?  Oh yeah.   Ice! :evil:

Jim,
I work for the local Sheriff's department and have instructed the Dispatch center to route any bee call through me.  In addition I've posted it to my facebook as well as told everyone I know that will listen that I'm looking for bees.  I also know a few local beeks who do collections that know I'm interested in case they can't make a call they get.

Now, I realize I'm not in the yellow pages and don't have signs out....but you would think that could come up with at least one swarm.  Oh, yeah....plus I have 4 traps out! LOL!

Moots,
All that and no calls. I'm really surprised. Have the bees been swarming in your area?

Moots,
Don't forget Craigslist when swarms start popping your way!
