RH,I have gathered these type of swarms before by laying a blnket on the ground and scraping the bees onto the blanket. Then fold and dump the blanket into the box.
i was thinking that since we're following the bloom maybe we should follow the swarms too. i'm thinking that some of the gulf coast and atlantic coast beekeepers will start getting swarm calls next week and that they will be popping up close to me by the last week of march as long as we don't have another freeze. have any south florida beekeepers hived any yet?
