Re: Entrance Size and Location for Swarm Trap
I agree with Gypsi. We're quietly building up to a fantastic spring here in Texas. There's still much that can go wrong but if the temps stay warm and sporadic rains continue we are going to have a bumper crop of swarms and honey. I'm trying to be ready. I need to start an account on one of the picture sharing sites so I can post pics of the henbit blooming right now and that bluebonnets and clover that are coming up strong. Monday we have a 70% chance of rain followed by a 50% chance on Wednesday. Hope it keeps up.
Gypsi, a few years back we built a new substation near Burleson and had some bees move into a cardboard box on the site. I had to remove them so the contractor could get the goods out of the box and complete their work. I know there are feral bees in the area. Good luck with your swarm trap there.
When you stop learning you're dead.
