A few days ago they called me to warn of a swarm of bees on a farm an hour from where I live. I don't consider myself an expert beekeeper yet, but I didn't think twice and went to catch him. These little animals are very important in the pollination of practically all plants. Almost half of the fruits that we see in supermarkets are produced thanks to them. In addition, a well-cared for beehive produces one of the most delicious and healthy foods that nature offers us: honey.
Most important: make sure we catch the queen
This video explains step by step how to proceed with the capturing a wild hive. The main trick, which I show in the video, is to make sure we have caught the queen. The rest is patience, bring the necessary equipment and be very careful not to spoil them.
I leave you with this video, which also gives me great satisfaction to share it.
After a few weeks I decided to check the progress of the captured hive and made another video. The results were excellent, quite a bit "closed" and "good posture".
Note: I have uploaded another video, about how to catch a swarm of bees
