Hey arky I'm not in northern Arkansas but in northwest tn, probably due east from you.i would say get them out in next two weeks. This would give the bees time to find and investigate and then if temperatures go back to being really warm you will be ready. I would say that we will have swarms in two to three weeks since things have been running ahead of schedule this year.I know that your area is usally a little behind our area every year in regards to blooming.I am going to get some out in the next week or so. I pass through your area usually three or four times a year going to Calico Rock to fish.Love it over there.`
