Swarming honey bees sure sign spring is here
Old tires can fill with water and be the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Checking items around your property that can collect water is a good summer habit to begin as warm weather arrives.
We have already been getting several calls at the Extension office regarding swarms of honey bees. Swarming occurs in the spring when a colony of bees outgrows its hive. These bees are generally very docile because they do not have offspring to protect.
