    Default How to Catch a Swarm

    For me swarm season started 2 months ago, but for most of you it's not quite here yet. I thought I'd share my latest blog post on techniques for catching a swarm. Anyone have any tricks or tips to add? http://beekeepinglikeagirl.com/how-t...swarm-of-bees/

    I guess I would warn people of the danger of dealing with bees while high on a ladder. Also, the queen pheromone and lemongrass oil will often lure them down out of a tree... especially with some old black brood comb as well.
