Hello, I'm a new beekeeper and started beekeeping last year. I asked people about getting swarms for them late April last season and got calls a few weeks after getting my name out. Does anyone know when bees start swarming in Oregon? I made a bunch of traps this year and like most beekeepers am anxious to get started! I'm out near Portland Oregon currently but may be in Sheridan within a year. It pretty much rains and is mild most of the year here. Any clues or suggestions would be great, thanks again!

Awesome, sounds great! My timing didn't sound too off last year, just needed to be more prepared. Thanks again all!

Last year I had heavy bites on all the traps towards the end of March. If the wheather man could stop teasing about this mid 50s wheather like they been doing for the past 3 weeks, more of mine will go out.
