This swarm too is one that got stuck out overnight on a rock wall. Cool windy day here in Kansas City.



This is my set up




I scooped maybe 3 Lbs. of them into the box that already has lemongrass oil in it, but the majority of the remaining bees are in the crevice between bolders and I can't get to them. It's been an hour and about half the bees are in the box, but the others are stuck between the rocks.

Should I give them more time?

Should I breakout the vacuum?

Should I tearout the rock wall to seperate the small bolder to hunt down the queen?

Thanks.    Don

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
