Sorry for the hideous upright video, but my first swarm of the year was from my spool colony (if you can’t tell by the title). I had a feeling they were ready because of all the bees hanging outside overnight. They landed on the same short tree that previous swarms landed on, so it was an easy capture. I’m just glad I was home. If last year is any indication, they should swarm again in 9 days. Then again 9 days after that.
