Wish I could report a really nice swarm today but it was not to be.
Have a trap that was being worked by a large number of scouts today. ( have 5 being worked by scouts today)
I really thought I was going to hit #17 today with this one. I mean there were scouts working it so heavy I would have sworn that it was a catch so I went back out this evening and sat watching the show and thinking
That the northern beeks are going to get envious again today.
Sat there till dark and was convinced it was a catch until the last 5 minutes of watching.
All of the traffic in and out stopped and then the bees that were in the trap began leaving a few at a time.
I knew what it meant but stayed and continued to watch and sure enough all the traffic in the last few minutes
Of daylight was outbound!
Guess I picked on the northern fellas too much and Mother Nature showed me!
Hope to give a better report tomorrow!
