Bees in May and the swarm list

Bees in May are worth a load of hay, bees in June are worth a silver spoon, bees in July let them fly. My thanks to the many volunteers who manned the swarm list.  Do you have all the swarms you want?  May is prime swarm time but the swarm list volunteers end May 5th.  Is there another list that extends to the end of May?See More

swarms

I would like to thank the Beeks who manned the swarm board.  Thanks to them I have been fortunate to have rescued 6 swarms of bees in the northeast heights bounded by San Mateo, east and Academy north.  I wondered if any record of swarm locations had been kept during the season.  I thought that it might be of scientific value.  I know that in a tree behind me at Forest Hills and Barnhart I have seen no fewer than 7 swarms in a tree too tall to rescue.  I often wondered where they swarmed off to…See More
