Thanks for the welcomes.
Yep we do have a bunch of bee people around here. From home bee keepers to large companies that travel the country with their Bees.
I am hoping to build some swarm traps to catch my own bees this spring. I have read about swarms being some of the best bees as they usually come from strong hives. If I don't succeed in catching a couple of swarms I guess I will have to fork over some cash for some nucs.
I live in the country surrounded by crop fields and wooded areas so I should be able to catch a few bees I hope.
