If you have built swarm boxes and placed them around an area that you think will yield a swarm, keep a watchful eye on them in the next couple of weeks.
The black locust trees are in full bloom and the honey bees love the abundant nectar that they provide.
Presently the hives are booming with activity and its surprising how fast they are filling honey supers.
If your neighboring beekeeper has underestimated the honey flow, space within the hive can become a problem and hopefully you can become a benefactor of that problem.
Yesterday I caught my first swarm in one of my Green Lake swarm boxes. Swarm box number two is also getting a good look from several dozen scout bees.
If you are having any luck at catching those free swarms, let the group know. We all love a good deal !
