What chances do I have of removing bees from a bush and successfully starting a new hive this time of year? I received a call from an aquaintance yesterday who said he had just discovered a swarm of bees in a bush in his front yard. They must have set up shop earlier in the spring because they now have built a comb larger than two dinner plates and apparently have some honey stores also. The guy is concerned that the bees won't survive the winter and wondered if I could use them. I don't have any hardware, and it might take several days to get some from a supplier. However, if starting a new hive this time of year is a bad idea, I might pass up the opportunity. I assume if I do start a new hive, I will have to do alot of feeding of sugar water and pollen. What does everyone think?
