    Default caught swarm today

    Well I caught my first swarm of the season today!I am sure they are my bees as I have been feeding them and the hives are full of
    bees!It was very cold here this weekend and I lost a weak hive to the cold.Not enough bees to stay warm.They had sugar on them but just to cold and queen was a sorry queen and to early to get a new one!

    Wow, already? Glad my traps are out. Make me think I need to get in my hives even though it is not going to get to 70 degrees for the next ten days.

    I had swarm cells in one of my hives Saturday.
    I also had a hot hive from last year in the same yard that went Queen less.
    Guess were the frames went.
    That hive also got a supper added.

    Slow down, I'm not ready yet. Quit catching swarms.

    Saw three drones two days ago, out of 45 hives. Maybe I have a little time yet.

    I am still a month away from the first possible swarm. Some people have all the luck!

    Bill - did you catch them in a trap like you gave me? When are you going to post pics of your Slovenian bee house?
