I had a new swarm I caught a month ago, swarmed on me last Saturday.... Think there were too many for one deep, is all I can figure. Afterward I got my swarm trap out and set it where the swarm had landed (they had left after about an hour, before I could get the trap set up) didn't get anything. It was going to rain, so I took the trap and set it on my gardening cart under my shed, when I got home just now, there are bees steady in and out of it, and on the screen of the shed.
Now, how do I get the bees to the hive, that is about 100 feet away? If I just take it to the hive and dump them in, will the others follow? Or maybe if I wait a little later in the evening, will most of them be in the trap and then pour them in the hive?
