Re: Anybody getting any swarm calls right now?
I got a call for one yesterday here in Vermont. August 23rd swarm! Small ball of bees and a queen. Dumped into a nuc and added a couple of frames of brood and bees from a strong hive. Doubt they make it through winter but worth a shot.
The best part is that I found the parent hive in the roof of an old condemned hotel and have contacted the owners. They agreeded to let me do the cutout next spring if they survive. Gotta love free bees!
Raising Vermont Bees one mistake at a time.
