Hi folks. I'm Acho aka Profeazy. I'm out seeking as much as I can get to know about beekeeping. I'm in Nigeria and getting all the help I need to start my hive isn't coming easy. I hope to change all that when I set up. Ok, I am open to any sort of advice you old hands have. For a start, I have a wild swarm nested deep in a tree stump. How do I get them into my hive when it arrives? Thanks in advance for your contributions.

Greetings Acho & welcome.
Getting bees from a natural cavity to a managed box can be done several ways from a "Hogan trap out" , with or without a chemical stink product, to an outright physical cut out.
These are just clues for you, since my success rate at this sort of thing is zero. But ... i'm sure others will chime in with their successful techniques. Good luck! CE

Thanks tech.35058. Your suggestion set me on a path of discovery. I've gotten some useful leads on convincing the swarm to move into my top bar hive.
