No, you'll have to do better, not just match him.  You may have to use a different body part.  How do you feel about holding a queen catcher with your lips???

Great job schawee.

I saw that done once in a swarm demonstration at our local bee clubs fun day before I ever had bees and was memorized. It sealed the deal for me for wanting to become a beekeeper and will be a memory I keep forever. Your video brought back cool memories. Reckon I'll have to try it on a swarm myself sometime when I have an audience of kids watching.

Thanks for the post.   .....Don

That was fun to watch Schawee and would be a great teaching video for people. It would be fun to place that queen catcher on different parts of the body and see what it looks like.  evil evil

Schawee,
was there some virgin queens in that swarm they may have wanted to leave with? Or possibly multiple queens?
