Can Often Be Prevented

Bee Keeping: Mysteries Of Bee-keeping Explained

"Prevention is better than cure." We can, if we keep a good lookout,

often prevent more than one issuing at a time. This depends on our

knowledge of indications, in a great measure. I have said that before

starting to fly off, they were about the entrance in great numbers;

there may be one exception in twenty, where the first indications will

be a column of bees rushing from the hive. To take this matter a little

farther from the surface, we will take a peep at the interior; that is,

if our hives contain glass boxes, such as have been recommended. It is

an advantage to know which are about to cast their swarms, as long

beforehand as possible.
