Swarm Trap is out
It maybe early. But I had some free time on Saturday. So I thru together a 5 frame nuc out of scrap. Decided to make it a swarm trap. I put 4 frames w/ foundation in it (I don't have any drawn frames yet) and straped it to one of my trees about 10' off the ground. I put a couple of drops of lemmon oil inside and at the entrance. I have a hummingbird feeder with 1:1 close by covered with bees. Sat, Sun, and today had 3-4 bees all day checking it out. I have no bees in this area, so I hope to catch a feral swarm.
Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.
