Look out for swarms!

Now that spring weather is here, I have had the opportunity to get into the hives for inspections.  In the strong hives, there have been queen cups, which means the bees are preparing for swarming – their way of creating a new colony of bees an continuing the circle of life.

There were no eggs or larva in the queen cups, so it will be at least 2 weeks before the strong early hives start swarming.  If you see a cluster of bees like the pictures below, contact me on Facebook messenger, or send an email to RussColtman@gmail.com and I will come collect the bees and give them a happy home and give you a pound of honey!
