    Default first swarm of the year

    I received a call last night to remove a swarm of honeybees from a local business. I know it is early for the mid atlantic area, but bee keepers be warned, this warm weather has started things off early this year!!!!!

    Good to know. My carni's are doing almost to well, and I am fearing a swarm. Last spring my Italians that overwintered swarmed no matter what I did to prevent or deter them. So the traps are being put out. Hopefully I can get lucky and catch my own swarms, but if not.... I'll take any swarm that stumbles upon the traps.

    My first swarm call down here was about a month earlier than last year. Another thing I've noticed is the swarms are a lot larger it seems too.
