Bee Swarm....or not
We watched it a few minutes and watched bees come in and out of the traps entrance but never saw any land on the comb.
I thought we had a swarm so I went to the shed and got the brood box my son sent me last year for my birthday. I had promised him to name it the CHAD Colony for the grand kids the next time I caught a swarm.
I don't see any activity. I walked under the trap and lifted it to see if there was any weight to it. If there was it was not much. A bee did come out of the entrance to greet me. I watched it a few minutes and did not see the activity I saw earlier so I don't know if I have a swarm or not. I still plan on taking it down this evening and having a peek. I am befuddled...maybe the bees are playing an April Fools joke on me!
