I got all this bee stuff, tools, suits, hives, frames, supers, yada yada yada... and no bees lol. Its driving me nuts!
We have two nucs on order for the end of this month...
As far as swarms go and catching them... ive got traps out, i see bees everywhere, but havent seen a swarm yet... im wondering if the unusually cooler weather is keeping them from swarming yet around south texas... its been in to 50s and 60s a lot lately, weve had 70s, 80s, 90s, and 100 degree days already.. then a cool front comes through again... been weird..
However we do have our official bee class this weekend.. weve been going to classes when we can on the weekends, every weekend is a different topic kind of deal. Learned a lot.. with weekend classes and learning on my own i feel pretty confident, but nothing teaches more than hands on, and i havent been hands on yet..
Itching to get going... rant over..
