I know it's a little early here for swarming, but the weather has been real nice. I had some spare time so I put an empty hive box, with some old comb, a perome lure, and some LGO on top of my shed.
I have immediate interest. Now, my question:
If bees are checking it out as a potential place to swarm, what should I be looking for? Is it the drones that do the scouting? In other words, if I see a lot of foraging bees, does it mean nothing?? If a lot of drones are interested, is that good?
