I'd love it if I had some empty equipment read.  Sad

I have two 'nucs'  that need larger homes.  If I have a swarm I'll be scrambling to get something.  I have all the wood..... but the time not so much.

Hopefully I'll get some swarms/calls this year. I just sent my info to the Consolidated Dispatch Agency Supervisor in case they get some 911 calls about a swarm.

ray, are they your bees or are these calls?  just curious.
i saw a few crimson clover blooms in town yesterday.  it's about to ramp up and i'm not ready.

I'm pretty sure that they're mine. I'm going out to catch another in just a few minutes. They have to settle. That's three.

ray, seems like hiving your own swarms worked out pretty good for you last year.

As far a growth, yes it did. Honey production was hurt pretty bad though.

The wife just called, said a swarm is hanging on the neighbor's mailbox. You might know,  I'm 5 hours away.

Two days of sunny weather and the fruitless plums are all going strong, apples, cherries, sugar maples, daffodils, crocus, tulips, multiple ground covers with little blue flowers....it is spring here....finally.

i suspect i'll find drones today and if so i'm going to pull nucs from any hives with queen cells.  i bought a radial arm saw yesterday.  looks like it's about to see some action.
