Last week of May and first week of June - “Swarming Season”

The beekeeping rhyme goes…

A swarm in May is worth a load of hay,

A swarm in June is worth a silver spoon,

A swarm in July ain’t worth a fly.

This weekend is reported to be the hottest weekend of the year, and if memory serves me correct, it’s at this time of year when the swarms arrive.

So I’ve put out five bait hives, these are just used bee hives, with old comb, which to bees stinks of bees and is heaven, in hope to catch a swarm of bees.

Some interest being shown already, shot on an iPhone 7 in slow motion!

fingers crossed.
