    Default Saw my first drone today

    I was watching my bees after putting a coat of primer on the neighbor's fence a yard or so from my hive when the first drone I've seen this year crawled out and made a VERY short cleansing flight (he more or less fell off the landing board into the grass, did his "buisiness" and flew back in). That capped drone brood I saw two weeks ago must be emerging.

    I need to get some LGO and set up traps pronto, I guess. Need to do a full hive inspection tomorrow as well, and look at my brother's, too. Should be time to make splits and trap swarms -- at least three weeks early this year.

    I see your having some nice weather in Evansville,IN. The west coast is getting hit hard and is going to continue to be winter again.
    Happy Swarm Hunting!

    It looks like May here -- redbud in full bloom, dogwoods blooming, trees greening up, dandelions in full bloom.

    About a month early, hope we don't get a hard frost like we did 4 years ago on April 15th!
