Read it, a pretty good book. Give em lots and lots
of space. Got 2 of those Snellgrove boards (BetterBee), never had any luck with
em though. When bees take a mind to swarm sometimes it seems impossible to
stop . Had three hives that looked VERY VERY healthy, like it would be a sure
bet they'd be swarm material later on. So I pulled one frame of
partially uncapped brood from each hive and put em in 2 frame nuc boxes.
Put an empty frame beside the broodframe, shook a bunch more bees on top of em
and closed it up. That ought to take a little pressure off
things!! Might be pushing the spring weather (If it gets too cold the
brood'll die) a bit though.

causes and steps to deter
the urge to swarm.
