I live in the frozen Northland. In years past I fed pollen patties to build up populations for spring flows. My colonies are generally strong and healthy and swarming has become an issue. So..., I'm wondering if the increased population because of feeling pollen patties has led to too many bees in the boxes and then to early swarm prep. I want honey so i want a good population of foragers but if the price is losing swarms I'm prepared to reconsider this approach. Who has really considered the correlation between early feeding of pollen patties and swarming?
