I'm new in here but have a question. I have 2 swarm traps that have been up for a week or two. I have bees in and out of them during the day, but at night there gone and I am wondering what I should do to get them to go in and stay so I can add them to a hive?? Please advise!! Thx !

Hi Aztec, I grew up in Hartsville used to live in apartments behind the race track there in Darlington. Just leave them alone, those are more than likely scouts checking things out. The will do this numerous times before they decide they like it or not. When they don't leave for a couple of days you are set. Do you have lemongrass or old comb in them? If they are checking them out leave them alone though.
