    Lake Thompson Honey

    Just got five (5) nucs from Dave. Five (5) *heavy* nucs. Good stuff.

    The bees weren't at all happy with us, but they'll settle down.

    Big thumbs up. :)

    Night swarms?

    Just got a call on a swarm (7:45pm).

    Are they likely to leave for a new "home" before, say, 8am tomorrow morning? I'd get them right now. . .except that they are 45 minutes away.
