    I think you’re confused on the nature of our competition. Check out Ollie’s thread: “Can our friendship survive this competition”

    Not confused at all, you know the saying, " all's fair in love and war". Just be careful, if I were Ollie and wanted to win, I might consider buying packages to put in my traps.

    Sorry for the thread drift.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    Ollie is smart where we are doing Mano a Mano competitions. He brands his frames with his ag number so I can’t switch out the frames if he lands one first. Whenever I beat him, he demands a video confirmation with the top cover off!

    Thanks for all the input. I will keep everyone posted on my swarm traps. I enjoy all the banter too.

    Charlie,

    Quick question...

    Last year we caught our first swarm of the year on March 5th. As you know, lots more rain this year...

    Scout bees just started hitting the traps this last week for the first time, so we are seeing a 3 week delay in swarms here.

    Is it the same there?

    Thanks,

    Soar
