Scouts about

I've been predicting a late swarming season following the very late spring here in southern England. Famous last words! We have our second decent day of spring and already the swarm scouts are nosing around my empty hives in the garden ... Since some people are short of bees, I might just put out a bait hive.

We had to do an artificial swarm on the busiest hive at the weekend, I'm currently waiting to see if she's still going to swarm anyway.

We will be lucky if our bees make it through the dampest spring we have had in years.
