May is upon us - the favourite month of many beekeepers and certainly ours: the optimism that we will manage the swarm impulse of our bees to perfection and the thrill of the swarm call (of other people's bees, of course) with invitations into those secret gardens that normally we cannot enter. Our infographic on swarm collection aims to help you avoid unnecessary journeys to misidentified swarms or fistfuls of honey bees. 

Our infographic is available for you to download and put somewhere handy in this swarmy season. Click here.
