    I've been up to my ear lobes in honey bees the past couple of months.
    I've caught 32 swarms so far and have 12 trap outs going and 15 more to setup.
    I've been trying to rebuild after the tornado earlier this month wiped out one of my beeyards, mostly my Nucs.

    I had a second swarm in 3 days move into one of my bait boxes. This one was massive! I don't know how they all fit in that five frame nuc. I gave them a full hive, a frame of honey and all the syrup they can suck down today. They swarmed with a brand new queen as well :-D

    It was a massive prime swarm, and a few cast swarms have gone. There are a few scouts that keep checking in from time to time.
