When is it too late to catch and hive a swarm?
I've heard the adage about Swarm in May and Swarm in June, etc., but I'm wondering when it's really too late to catch and rehome a swarm. I just got a call about a small swarm on a guy's house. They've been there a bit because it appears they've built some comb on his house. It's about the size of a soccer ball, though I don't know how much of that is comb.
I'm wondering if I should try to combine this swarm with another I caught about a month ago that is almost ready for a second deep, or if I should catch and hive it in a new hive and let it get after it. I expect our dearth to start any day now as dry as it's been for the past month.
Thoughts from you veteran beeks?
I'm the dude, so that's what you call me.
