Not less than a day after putting my swarm trap up on my upstairs balcony, I got an email from someone who had a honeybee swarm in a tree in their backyard. Free bees are free bees in my opinion, so we jumped in the car to go get them with my top bar hive swarm trap.
There was a nice swarm of honeybees up in a tree and it was quite easy to shake them into the open box. I captured the whole thing on video, so enjoy!
More updates to follow… Here’s my update post.
