I'm considering the chekerboarding for swarm prevention this year and wanted some input on this from my area. Has anyone tried this in N.C. , and how did it work out for you? I've read Walt Wright's article on it, and it sounds like a common sense, sound, and sure-fire approach to swarm control. I appreciate any info I can get on this, good or bad, before I put it into motion. Thanks in advance guys.
