    This thread is not for discussion. If you post here, include the date of the swarm, the location of the swarm (city, state, zip code), and the weather condition.

    3/18/2014 - One of my colonies swarmed and I was lucky to be on hand to hive them. Big swarm, maybe 5-6 pounds of bees. Branch was knee high, about 20 yards away from hive body. 65 degrees at 10am. Shook them into 2 mediums, put the top on, and walked away. I'll be back in a few days to see if they're still there.

    Caught our first swarm of the year today. Nice foot ball size swarm. Swarmed from an oak tree about 50 feet from where they landed on a mailbox post. Nice looking yellow bees look to be Italian.

    3-2014 found first queen cup with an egg in it yesterday in one of our nucs. Not certain they would have followed through with it but I have been predicting queen cells in our area as early as 3-14 for our area. We will be checking all hives for queen cells today. We also started our first cell builder yesterday and will be grafting our first batch of cells on 3-31.
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.

    Caught our second swarm of the season Saturday 3-29-14 South of Laurel, Ms 39440
    Almost 70 degrees with a cold wind blowing, clear skies, we had a 4 inch flood the night before.
    It was a nice big swarm. They landed on the same mailbox post I caught the first of the season on only a week before.
