    That sucks.

    It was a sweet little hive from a swarm last year that I left on that table partly out of laziness and partly because of skunks. It boomed, so I just let it be.

    By the time I went and got a box and returned they'd moved on from the tree and I couldn't find them.

    It's just way too early for swarming this year.

    apparently they disagree. luckily they are strong enough to do it so the rest will rebuild their numbers
