Sunday Reading - Will They have Bees at Gult's Gulch?
It's still cloudy here which is slowing down the drying off period a bit but it has also cooled down a bunch. I look for a bit a swarm activity over the next few days. This time of year whenever the girls are kept inside due to rain they begin to get a sense of just how cramped they are or something. Last year all the big swarms I captured or had come out seemed to always come right after a rain. Of course since it rains almost everyday this time of year perhaps I am reading more into it than I should.
I managed to move swarm number three last night. Caught this swarm in the same exact spot as swarm 2 so it is another city swarm. During my rounds this morning I was once again convinced there is a swarm taking up residence in my trap over by the West Apiary but I have been fooled by that trap once before this year. There sure are alot of bees coming and going and hanging out there however.
Apparently I was wrong about something yesterday. It seems that indeed someone is putting together a "Galt's Gulch".
I wonder if they will have a protective force field screen in effect?
Anyway he has some interesting observations. I wonder if we will make the few years he predicts?
So I am off to get some outside work finished while I can. They aren't predicting rain today but it sure looks like it could start at anytime.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
