    Default My 3rd Solo Swarm Catch

    This last Fall, I got lots of practice catching swarms. We had a severe drought, and bees kept showing up in my yard. These were not from my hives. I open fed during the drought, so I think all the bees in the area knew that my yard was the place where they might find enough food to survive.

    Default Re: My 3rd Solo Swarm Catch

    I had several small swarms show up in my yard too. I also did open feeding with us being in a horrible drought. I am going to keep some swarm traps out in the yard this year so they maybe easier to catch with out a ladder.
