SWARM? Call us, don't email
It is that time of year again, when the hives feel a little cramped and ambitious queens decide to decamp for more spacious digs. Swarms are a part of spring, and our early warmth may make this season worse than others.
Our Swarm Control page has everything you need to know if you spot a swarm, including a list of first responders in your area.
For the full club calendar, see the Calendar of Events page.
For a printable version of the calendar, see our current newsletter or this file.
