Swarm Trap Catching Going Well


2010

Back from my trip out to West Texas.  Got a little under the weather, the wife and I caught a minor cold from my baby nephew. But I was still up for checking a swarm trap today, the trap set at the flood settlement pond.  It finally caught one, saw consistent bee traffic going in and out.  Just before I left for the trip, I noticed that the swarm trap next to my driveway caught another swarm.  So that puts the count at 4 swarms caught this season. I think I only have 10 traps deployed right now.   I haven’t even checked the 2 near the  school or the one in the park north of me.

So I intend to move these after dark sometime this week. Roberto caught a swarm too, so we will move his at the same time.

Hive count 11, I think, plus the trap hives.
