Hey, Im a Peace corps volunteer in El salvador and Ive just started a beekeeping project in my site. Going from a beekeeping book I got we built several top bar hives and in going with the instructions in the book, put a starter strip of beeswax on each top bar, rubbed the inside with lemon grass (zacate de limon), and sugar water. The boxes were placed in heavily trafficked trees. Bees were quick to come, rob the sugar and leave. they have not been back. Any advice on capturing wild swarms?
