The first swarm caught in my traps for 2019. Almost certainly from one of my hives. 5+ pounds…easy. Clearly my swarm management is lacking. I had gone through the hives in this yard a couple of weeks ago. I moved brood down into the bottom boxes and put mostly empty comb above. I have new queens coming next week, so I will begin splitting later this week. Living on the edge here.
