Re: Bees Checking Out Swarm Trap
Maybe I am greedy but I take them as soon as I can. I put them in a new deep along with a frame of brood. I was told the frame of brood will keep the swarm there. I've looked at some very nice swarms in my bait hives and have come back to see them gone.

Gotta make the most out of these wax building machines. Especially since most have likely come from my own stock.
"Challenger" as in the Mopar muscle car. Not a personality description .
Keeping bees to raise money for chordoma.
