How common are swarms in sc pa
I am only going into my first winter keeping bees but I can't wait until spring. I would like to increase my hive and I just wondered how common swarms were in south central pa. I did get one swarm but it was from the chambersburg area. There are a few bee keepers around me but how common are wild swarms? I read about all you guys and gals catching lots of swarms but I think a lot of you are from down south. Is it worth putting money into swarm traps or should I just focus on splitting my hives?
