Been awhile since I visited, came back to check my swarm catching history. Because I caught a big ole swarm today in the middle of my yard. I noticed a little action in one knothole traps and as I was walking out, saw the swarm attached to the same ligustrum bush that I found one in last year. I boxed them in a ten frame deep with one shallow and my new screened bottom board with the oil beetle tray underneath.
I don't know if anybody reads any of this, but it sure is good record keeping for me. Found the swarm about 3:15 p.m. If anyone out there reads this, let's talk swarm trapping...nothing better than free bees. The Hummel Farm Apiary now totals four hives with three that survived the winter and the new swarm today.
