Random thoughts about my gardening and beekeeping experiences in Northern California's El Dorado County.

2012 swarm season has started
received a few calls - picked up a swarm in shingle last weekend and this one in my backyard the same day. i know of two other swarms issued from my hives - didnt see them take off, but saw the aftermath. both - they were fatties - 30 feet up in my neighbors pine trees.
hoping he didnt see them before they took off to thier new home.
always a challenge, but for some reason i like the bugs; stingers and all....
