    Yesterdays sunshine brought on loads of pollen from our yards here in Kalamazoo Co.
    We also found a bunch of morels growing in open spots.
    Spring has arrived here now.

    Does it look like that on the inside of the hive?
    If it does, I would bet you have a problem.

    Re: Trapping Experts, Will this Work?

    I've always used 10 frame deep bodies for swarm traps.
    Had a handful left when we switched over.
    Just fill them with my medium frames and they work great.

    They will come apart as easy as they go together.
