Wild Honey Bee Swarms.

Hello, I am a local beekeeper in need of wild honey bee swarms this Spring to replace severe winter losses of most of my beehives. I am primarily interested in capturing Large basketball size swarms that gather cling in a large suspended mass on tree limbs or clustered on exterior surfaces. I do not do and removals from interior buildings or hollow tree cavities. If you should receive any calls in this regard, I would be most grateful if you would refer the calls to me. Thank you.

Blueberry bush leaves

This year my blueberry bushes did not leaf out fully. They are green, but did not fully develop. I have always mulched with pine needles and oak leaves to give soil an acid ph. Would this be the problem? We have clay soil.

Clover Lawn

When we moved to our current house the yard was at least 50% zoysia -but one extremely hot summer unfortunately killed it all. Since then we've noticed a surge in what I believe is white clover - in addition to wild strawberries and dandelions. I'm looking at getting chickens next spring and moving them around the yard in a chicken tractor. Not just for eggs, but also to hopefully help repair our sad post-zoysia lawn. If I were to seed the ground after each move of the chickens - would I seed with all clover - or do I need to add clover to grass seed? (and if so, which is the best for Omaha weather?) The yard ranges from full sun to speckled sun (through tree branches) - there are almost no full shade areas. What are the benefits and risks of an all clover (or mostly clover) lawn?
