Capturing Feral Bees
My neighbor knows where there is a "wild" honeybee hive in a log. I've never seen it yet but when he mentioned it the first thing I though was that I'd like to go and get it or at least transplant the queen into one of my boxes.
I'm over here in Northern Mexico and don't have much access to beekeeping stuff like all you over there in more developed countries have.
Since I've never seen it I don;t know what to think of it yet. Tomorrow I may go out there and take some pictures to bring back here.
I guess it would be like a cutout. So are these really hard to do? I only have a veil, gloves and smoke.
When would be a good time to do it too? Right now there are no flowers so all the bees are a lot less active.
Thanks for any help.
