I saw the back of Iddee's tee-shirt and wanted to check it out.I live about 30 mi too close to Potland oops Portland. I caught 13 swarms for myself and 3 for friends this year.Now it's July' so let'em fly.
Or you could hive them in a swarm box to see how the queens perform after mating. If's they are up to form, you could use them to replace old worn out queens from other hives.G3farms said:Catch them, pinch the queen and add back to a weak hive to boost their numbers :
Nothing wrong with your thinking. I love your brief and to the point answers. They are always on target. It's just that sometimes there are two targets and you're used to hitting the bull's eye with one gun. :hunter:G3farms said:.... some times I don't think too good.

my inlaws 'were' originally from Oregon... one from Klamath Falls and the other from Portland. I guess the Portland one missed the pot connection since the only credit he got was building the atomic bomb, the magnatometer and the first Cat-Scan machine.
