Caught my First Swarm this year April 8 2016, It was a cold windy day, From a nuc that had overwintered. They are now working on drawing out their honey super. Used lemongrass oil and a deep box to catch them.
Witnessed my first swarm early this AM. Was in the top of a huge oak tree with zero chance of retrieving. Don't think it was from any of my hives since they were screened shut as a result of intense robbing yesterday, but who knows as I'm a first year keeper.
Guess I know where I'll move my swarm traps to now - top of that oak!
