Honeybee Trapout

Here’s a video that I took while performing the trap-out on Monday’s arrived swarm of honeybees to a neighborhood in Richardson, Texas.


After the bees exit the window-screen mesh cone, they are unable to find their way back in. Their choice is to (a) use the 5-frame nuc box with a frame of my honeybee’s eggs.. or (b) to abscond. Their choice is usually to move into the box.

After no bees are left in the tree, I’ll remove the box, and take it to my bee-yard.
