    Default swarm help

    i got a call of a swarm in a house and went to look at it and its in a very aqward place and i would tear up alot trying to get it. I was wondering if i placed a hive fairly close to swarm entrance with frames and lemongrass oil in it would it lure them in the hive?

    No, not if they have already moved into the structure.

    UNLESS, they have moved in within the last 24 - 48 hours and you can drive them out with BeeQuick or BeeGo to your waiting hive. Smoke can drive them out also but to big a fire risk around a home. If your bait hive had a frame of open brood it would up your odds.

    Good luck,

    Don

    They said it has been there 2 plus years so more than likely just got to get in there?

    Yes, you are looking at a cutout removal then.

    If you haven't done a cutout you can go on youtube and look up JPthebeeman and see how they are done.

    BeeMasters Forum has several removal guys who post and live in central Tennessee if you need help.

    Good luck. ....Don
