You are somethin' else!  And, like JP says, you are the best 'queen finder.'

I am going downstairs as soon as I finish this post to see if I can find my 20 gallon trash can lid -- I made my extractor from rhe barrel part a dozen years ago.  The lid is going into my swarm kit.  It ought to be a good "thunder maker."

I was waiting on a eagle eye pistol shot. Guess they would have frowned on that tactic around a school huh?

Quote; iddee

Years ago, Grandmas everywhere kept a large wooden spoon on the back porch next to the dishpan. When a hive swarmed, she would grab them and stand in the yard banging on the dishpan like a drum until the swarm landed. Anything can be used, as long as it makes a drum like noise. I used my hand on an empty cardboard nuc yesterday. That's all I had handy.

It was known as tanging, or drumming. Now there is another motion that has been dubbed drumming, so most call swarm calling tanging now.

That answers the drumming, but what is a s m a school?

Nice job schawee!  I tried tanging this year for the first time and it worked as well.  My dad who is 72 years old talks about when he was a kid chasing swarms beating on his moms pots and pans. This was passed from his father down to him. This was the accepted practice to get the bees to move.

I had a swarm land high in a tree well beyond our ladders, and my dad suggested it, so my son and I beat on two cake pans and the bees actually came back to the hive they had swarmed from.

We all stood there looking at each other not really sure of what we just had done shocked.  Dad spoke up and said "See I told you it worked". grin


Thanks for the video schawee, nice one!
