    Good sized swarm. Filled (2) 8 frame mediums. Came from a hive that I split this spring. Not sure that they are going to stay. They really did not march in like I would have liked. I guess we'll see.

    My bees swarmed today, August 23rd 2010. I'm not sure why they did this as I thought the population seemed a little less robust than a few weeks ago.
    I have 3 brood boxes of 8 frame mediums. I also thought they got the swarming out of their system in July on Long Island. I'm new to all this. The weather is rainy and windy so I can't even look to see what went wrong.

    Had a confirmed swarm on May 13th, but there were signs it had swarmed earlier. This was the same hive that had swarmed in August of last year. Some of the other Long Island beekeepers I spoke to had swarms the last week in April.
