It's "That Time" again...

Well folks, it is that time of year again.  Yes the swarms have started here in Albuquerque.  I can't remember having swarms this early in the year before but today I got my first swarm call near Juan Tabo and Candelaria. I can hardly believe it but it's true. Looks like it's going to bee a buzzy year.

P.S.- Scratch what I said in an earlier post about not doing a full hive inspection until a little later on.
