Hi, everyone,

this is a speculative post. I have directly observed three of my hives to swarm over the past few years.

Thing is, each time, they have bivouacked in a westerly direction from the original hive, almost due west.

Anyone else observe this kind of phenomenon?

Regards,
Thomas

I really have one this spring to go by, but it has been a swarmy spring. I have witnessed 4 swarms this season, and they all took of in a different direction and clustered in different places. When they took off for good. the two primary swarms I saw, one headed off west and the other south. The other two I managed to collect.
