I got a worried call from home today…”Are you coming home soon? The bees are doing something weird!” This bunch was due for an inspection soon, so in I went. There’s nothing like a crowd of bees loafing around the front of a hive to put the fear of swarms in me. As it turned out, everything inside seemed fine: no swarm cells, but lots and lots of bees prompted a quick supering. With warm weather and so much blooming, it’s hard to stay ahead of the need for more boxes!
