I have some land in northern Minnesota just outside of Chippewa National Forest. Are there any feral bees up in this area? Would it be worth placing a few swarm traps up here? I know there are a few other people with hives within a couple miles. I do have a trap at my place just north of Minneapolis but no takers yet.

While I don't know your area I see no one has responded yet so I thought I would chime in.

If you have the time, opportunity and the spare equipment to commit to putting some traps out up there, I'd suggest there is little risk other than potential theft or vandalism.

If nothing else you can try one year and become convinced in your own mind as to the prospect of feral stock. For my part, I do hope you find some.

Good luck with this.
