    Default How To Build A Bee Bait Box For Swarms And Trapping

    http://todolisthome.com/build-a-bee-...ox-for-swarms/ This has been a couple of months in the making but that is what good planning is all about. Getting the future to become what you imagine. Thatís been my way of life and no I cannot tell nature what to do but I can read the sun or clouds for sign of whatís coming next. Itís an amazing world honey bees live in and right now I am reading Fruitless Fall by Rowan Jacobsen and it is such a fun read. It helps to take away the objective nature that is inherent to beekeeping. Instead one feels as if they can understand bees better with this read.

    Anyway the message of the day is that bees will do what bees will do and swarming is a natural and beautiful thing for them to do. My first experience with honey bees was observing a swarm fly over my brotherís head and mine back in 197X?? We didnít know what to do and kinda freaked out but we called our Dad and he called the mailman who happened to be a beekeeper. that was the first and last swarm I ever saw and hopefully the next I see will be in my front yard.

    Watch todayís video and you will follow my steps to building a simple swarm bait box and watching it in action. No swarms yet but just in case. Especially in case the older colony decides to split itself and send half to live elsewhere. If itís not too late get you baitbox built today. But remember ďA swarm in May is worth a load of hay; a swarm in June is worth a silver spoon; but a swarm in July is not worth a fly.Ē Special thansk to McCartney Taylor of LearningBeeKeeping.com Tony Teolis
