APRIL - MAY HIVE MANAGEMENT
Colonies are now quickly increasing their population.
Abundant nectar and pollen and warm weather promotes swarming.
Hives ready to swarm construct queen cells on the bottom of hive frames.
These cells can be seen easily by tilting each hive body upward at a 45-degree angle.
A closed queen cell is a alert that on the first clear warm day after a couple of rainy days, that colony is ready to swarm.  
Insert IPM sticky boards to determine early season mite loads.
Remove entrance reducers or turn them so the bees use the large slot for hive entrance/exit.
Honey Bees really like a small upper hive entrance. A 5/8” hole drilled in the upper box , to the left or right of the handle works great.
