How frequently should I check my boomer hives this spring? Trying to toe the line between staying on top of swarms and too many inspections.

I check mine every two weeks just to make sure everything is ok. A booming hive can swarm pretty quick.

It really depends on the swarm prevention strategy, your goals and time available. Weekly is about right during prime swarm issue time, every 2 weeks or so outside that.
Been checking in on them about once a week. They've been growing by leaps and bounds. Going to continue that program since you said it was OK! Thanks!
