« on: January 23, 2014, 01:09:35 PM »
Hey all.  I'm back.  Sorry for the absence.   Had a few cardiac issues last summer.  But is fixed and I'm back to irritate the northern beeks.  ;).

how many swarms are you planning on catching this year?  i still think you were shaking out your own bees part of the time last year.

i wish i could challenge him.  we just don't have the bees around here that they have down in cajun country.  i hived one swarm last year and it just happened to be settling in a tree on the side of the road and i noticed as i was driving by.
the most i ever hived in one year was probably around a dozen and that was around 99 or 00.  those were all calls, i've never used swarm traps but i might this year.

It's been since the early 90's that I last heard of a swarm around here. I know it happens, just haven't seen or heard of any.

glad to hear you are ok Bailey... im thinking about getting my rabbits going again this year as well... They are to tasty not to give it a go. Are all of them going in the freezer or are you selling a few here and there?
