Lots going on here in St. Charles County. Wondering if anyone is feeding syrup yet?
+1 for Lowes discount paint!!
Pretty much a bust here in the St. Louis area on Black Locust :-(

+1 on waiting 3-5 days.

Received a swarm call last night at 6:00 heading out that way this morning hopefully they are still there..
Here are a couple of quick videos today of the swarm in my bee yard. Not sure if these are from one of my hives or from the woods.
