I have just had my first swarm of the year but they are so far up an old cedar treey there is no chance of me getting them down myself. What I have done is to set up a honey super with pulled foundation (super because it was ready on short notice)complete with hive top feeder with a bit of sugar water and entrance feeder with small mason jar of last years honey. This setup is located within fifteen feet of the cedar tree. I'm just crossing my fingers and have hope that the scouts find the setup and not some other location.
Does this sound like a worthy try? I do not own a shotgun so I am not able to shoot it down like others have had success doing. I have heard of baited hive bodies, am I close in my attempt?
Thanks in advance for your replies!
