Swarming


Swarm in tree


Swarm on ground

I have been hearing reports of swarming going on. Many overwintered colonies are over crowded and need to be divided. Both of these swarms were huge and were captured by very appreciative beekeepers and they thank you for their free hives.
If a colony swarms that usually means you will not get honey off that colony this year.
Nature's Nectar LLC buys divides if a beekeeper does not want to get any bigger. Call me if you want to sell a divide.
