It seems that if a swarm is removed and what ever they were clustered on was left behind the chances are pretty good that another swarm will land in the same place. I have noticed this in my bee yards that it is usually the same branch that will have different swarms on it throughout the season when I'm not doing a good job of keeping up with my swarm control.:lookout:
I have my swarm traps out....just waiting for the first one. BEESLAVE I agree I had one last year that just started applying wax (very small dots of wax) to the leaves and branch...had three land on that same place. My dad caught 8 swarms in 6 weeks last summer using the same box and the same tree...we are hoping for a repeat swarm season
