If it decides to move-in, this will be the 3rd swarm caught by my truck over the last 3 years. I had preped the box with lemon-grass-oil for placement
at another site --- but it looks like a swarm may claim it while parked in my driveway. Btw, I carry the LGO bottle in the truck tool box along with a small cloth
for applying it in the swarm box. I've found a couple of swarms while stopped at a traffic light or parked in a restaurant parking lot or a shopping area lot.

*** sorry - I could not upload the video zip file: I'll try to find some other way to show it ***
