Re: Lots of swarms?
I have caught 13 swarms this year. 3 from my own yards. I couldn't say for sure but I would venture a guestemate that I have lost 20-25 swarms from my own. I have had 3 swarms that have exploded & swarmed again, one of which was so big it snapped a 1" branch that it landed on & filled 1.5 deeps.
I am not seeing what I thought I would for honey production & posting questions about broodnest backfilling & no swarm cells (that I see).
Is anyone else seeing this? In the NY area?

I have NOT failed. I have only found many many ways that do not work!
