Last week I hived a small swarm I caught 2 weeks ago. They are still building comb but with so few bees it is going slow.
As of Friday 5/1/15 I had not caught any other swarms and was really wanting to get more bees. So says I to Me " ya best order some bees quick before it is too late ya dumb cajun". So I always listen when me talks so I ordered 2 packages from Kelly bees.
This morning I go and check 2 swarm traps about a mile behind the house and guess what I found. Not 1 but 2 swarm traps with bees in them. I don't know how long they have been in the traps as it has been too muddy to get back there. I think I will leave them in the traps a couple of days just to make sure they are getting settled in before moving them. I did listen at the boxes and heard good busing come from both so maybe these will be bigger swarms than the first one I caught.
Would this be a good idea or should I get them ASAP.
