This is the outside wall of the shed where I keep my unused bee equipment, so this whole area smells really nice.
But there are gaps where the wall joins that ceiling, as you can see, and I'm seeing a bunch of scout activity right there. I think a swarm wants to move in. I'm 99% sure they haven't moved in yet, because I ran a stethoscope all around that area tonight, and I didn't hear anything.
So I sprayed some Bee Quick into the gaps, and then a bunch of spray foam to try and seal it up.
But Bee Quick is designed to dissipate quickly. Are there are other repellents that are long lasting? Like cedar is to moths? Or can I use moth balls?
I'm also thinking about water meter cavities, as those attract swarms like they were designed for it.
