Richard Reid gave an interesting presentation on swarm prevention and splits on Thursday (9th April). The presentation came from Michael Bush’s website. To access the PowerPoint presentation itself go to bushfarms.com/beespresentations.htm and click on “Swarm Prevention and Splits” on the left hand side. You will need PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer in order to watch it, so I have also converted it to pdf which does not need PowerPoint: click here for that printout.
Also here is a link to the Mike Palmer video that Richard had hoped to include. There are some very good points about swarming in this 10 minute video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3QlLUcT2SQ
