Swarm Call

Today is marked as the first swarm call for the Spring 2012 season.

When I received the call, a few bees (scouts) were coming in and out of the tree. By the time I got there, the bees were coming in – and it was looking like a tornado of honeybees. I quickly placed my swarm trap box in a good location – but the ladies had already decided that the tree was their new home.

Pics below… I’ll be doing a trap-out later this week on this colony.

I should be able to initiate the trap-out on Wednesday of this week.
