Yeah, that's what I kinda thought. Makes sense since you would spray the bees in a new package before you install them. I mean they're still techinally a swarm but inside a box.
But this video threw me off with the whole cold water treatment. You gota check out this video and see what I'm talking about. Seemed sorta weird, plus the guys doing it ended up making the swarm leave instead of catching it in that neat wooden box he had. Cool video though, there's a wicked scene of a real queen mating in flight and I guess it's the only known video footage of this process. Gives you a new respect for drones, thats for sure!
Hey sean, how about a link to the videos?
