I think the only reason they slow down during the summer months here is due to the dearth. I haven't attributed it to being post-swarm or anything like that. But every 5-miles in beekeeping seems ...

Barbara,

Thanks for the great question.

I would say mid-Feb through about April is our prime spring swarm season, then about mid-September through mid-November for the fall swarm season.

YES!!

You both are correct.

My son had to point it out to me a few days ago, as well.

I was embarrassed that I couldn't see it until the wholly obvious was pointed out by a 13-year-old.

We can pretty much do removals all year long here in central Florida. However, we still have to check the long-range forecast.

It's actually been quite a while since I've done a removal.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
