My Bees Swarmed

Post by dblowfish » Thu Sep 07, 2017 9:16 am

Hi all.
My hive swarmed on September 3. Luckily they rested on a nearby tree and I was able to contact a local beekeeper to collect them. My bees swarmed last October and apparently for them to swarm this early in the season is very unusual. The hive is healthy and productive with some added sugar to help them through Winter. Just wondering if anyone else has had a swarm so early this Spring?

I was contacted about a swarm on August 30 in Gordon and yes... that seemed unusually early to me.
I didn't manage to catch the swarm but saw a photo and it really was a swarm of bees.
