Do swarm lures work?
« on: July 09, 2009, 04:34:48 PM »
I've had two swarms land 60 feet from a hive with a swarm lure in it.  At that point I caught them both.  How do bees approach a lure?  Fly right to it or land short before the final step?  I've wondered if they would have ended up there on their own.
