Has anybody acctually found a swarm on a ship? Where on a ship was it located?
I've seen ship going through the Eisonhower Locks, here near Massena, NY. They are big. But if there were a swarm of bees on any of the ships that I saw, I find it difficult to believe that people on board wouldn't come across it, at some time.
I have set out swarm lures, to attract swarms that might come off of ocean going vessels coming through the locks. But there aren't lots of ocean going ship going through the St. Lawrence Seaway, from what I was told by the Lock Master.
The swarm lure did attract a few bees, but not a swarm. There were no results from the sample that I sent off. There weren't enough bees in the trap or sample.
