past swarm dates for Wisconsin

Just wondering if some of my fellow Wisconsinites could let me know roughly when to expect the swarming season to start? I'm down in the southern part of the state? I know one person mentioned early June on another thread. I'm planning on setting out a few swarm traps this spring (sometime).

I do not like using a calender, because the bees don't seem to either. What is blooming sometimes is better, but then the weather factor... When the dandelions and fruit trees are finished, things start to heat up. If the basswoods are blooming, you are getting safe. Some where in between is the danger zone. I know, not much help. Watch your own hives and see when they start to set cells.
