The free bee thing? We have truck expense,phone,insurance,time and experience.Name one that is free?

Old used comb is best,place box at 10 feet high face south.= catch swarm!
Need a removal ASAP in New York city?

bought some 2 years ago and use them on cutouts.
they have worked fine for me.
all gloves get stung during work must be changed often.
They are nice as pets but we can not have them in NY as they can carry rabies.
To keep them out of the bee's go with a top entrance.
In NY it's illegal to relocate any rabies vector species.Fines...
use a gallon zip lock bag. fill 3/4 full,lay on frames cut x in top.
looked at a ferral hive two years ago that had black bees.
they didn't think they should pay to remove.wonder if they are still there?
I have a problem killing a queen? this is what I do.
find old queen,catch her and put her in a 5 frame nuc box,add 1-3 frames of brood,honey,pollen.
install new queen in hive.If she takes,Good! if...
I like to start swarms in nuc's.Once brood is laid then into a bigger home.
Just my way?
are you taking only swarms or do you remove from stuctures?
Careful of this bunch most have been stung SILLY!
Some great info and a lot of kidding.
Hang on they will feed your addiction,Oh you say your not addicted ? You will be!
Great guide to giving these thank you.
I have one to give this fall and needed ideas so yours will be helpful.Thanks again
A late swarm in NY still has a chance to make it.Now even if it fails the drawn frames they make are worth hiveing them.
If you plan on doing this job it better get done soon?
Our weather is turning fast.
the logistics of hiveing this colony are only slowed by the highth.
Some of the "tricks" I use :
Just removed (8-30-08) a swarm from a small tree that had started comb building! Also took one off a building early this year? Bees do funny things.
Did one this summer !
give me a call 315-893-7526
catch a few each season.8fr.box better than 5 fr nuc. place 8-10 ft high(rope over branch ect.) face south. find Longest East west EDGE in your area ( gas line,power line ect.)
use Bjorns lures. ...
Have had several calls to do cut-outs after they could'n kill them? A polite no thank you is offered.
Even had an offer of 3 hives if I would repair the building they were in at no charge to me?...
mark,what ever the reason I am getting more than usual amount of swarm calls? Cut out calls are about the same as last year.
Missed a huge swarm yesterday,late call by home owner.Got there and...
Use wire mesh so that skunk has to stand on hind legs(expose belly too stings) and they go elseware. Better to have skunks than mice!
Are they still available?
used up the ones I had and they worked so well would like more.
Are these of russian linage? I was once told to feed russian stock to help build also feed pollen .Hopefully we will get a good golden rod flow for winter stores?
One of my biggest problems is getting good comb for swarm traps.My traps are 5 frame nucs.Inside I use 2 drawn combs and 3 undrawn.
When the brood has left my swarm frames the frame go into my...
I use two methods,one use a throw rope an raise a 5 frame nuc and swarm lure up too the swarm.two use a cloths basket (nylon mesh from $1 store) and a long pole .both ways work.
