      If you haven’t already had a recent look at your colonies, now might be a good time. I have had to put swarm control on one of mine and other beekeepers are also reporting strong colonies, lots of drone and play cups and even some queen cells. I believe we are going to see early swarming. Good luck and happy beekeeping!!

      My daughter shot a short video of someone collecting a swarm off a roadsign in Bath just after midday today. If I can work out how to do it I’ll post the video!

      Put the video on my Google Drive – see if this works:

      That worked. Well done! Funny, of all the places a road sign! I wonder what the sign said? There’s a joke there somewhere……
