Well, I know some folks up North hate this, but it is spring here. (Orlando)
I noticed that the trees leaves opened on some of the oaks while I was out of town last week. I saw a few orange trees in bloom already.
I got my first swarm call last Thursday, but when I got there, it was just a bunch of scouts.... but you know they are thinking about it. You don't find a hundred bees investigating a hole for no reason.
For those of you still frozen in, rest assured it is coming. The warmth will spread North like crazy over the next few weeks.
