That's good to hear though. They are a couple weeks a head of us. I was busy with swarms this time last year. Been kinda slow so far. Maybe next couple weeks will pick up.Dang Chick, why don't you send those swarms up to D/FW? I have not gotten a call yet. We must be a few weeks behind you.
Bump! Good job Chick! I'm just going to start selling anything I catch from here on out. Figure I'll hive them, let them sit for a month then put up for sale.At the rate I am picking up swarms, I may as well pull my swarm traps in. I am just about to the point that I have all the hives I can mess with. Picked up another nice swarm today.
Since I get home at about 5, get the call, load up the car, and drive out, it's usually right about dark when I'm popping them into a nuc!Just curious, but has anyone ever went and picked up a swarm after dark? I picked up a cluster on a tree this last week in the cold and rain, no problems what so ever, I think they were actually happy to see a place out of the rain, hardly any took flight.
