Re: After collecting swarm..."extra" bees? (or does this mean I really missed the que

well with my experience with a veteran bk, the worse thing you can say is the word pesticide, bk getting really affended by that word and with good reason, after i collected a swarm the lady did not want stragglers back on her tree. so my veteran bk said to dose that area where the hbees were with fuel oil, it discourages the bees from landing there and breaks up the scent of the queen and they move on their merry way. and it worked, went back days later and not a sign of a honeybee.
