I've been watching the beekeeping programs on RFDTV and was thinking about setting up with some bees next spring. But then yesterday morning I found a whole swarm of bees stuck to a fence post, and they were still there at noon today. It's been raining, so maybe they are waiting for the weather to clear before flying off. Anyway, I came home and cobbled together a top bar hive like the one on Michael Bush's website. It looks pretty good. So now how is the easiest way to get that ball of bees into my box. If I spray some Pledge with Lemon in the box, will they fall in love with it and crawl into the box? Or will I have to use a shovel or something and just scoop them into it. I don't have any proper beekeeping attair, only some coveralls and welding gloves. Also, is it too late in the year for these bees to get started in their new hive? I'm near Snyder, TX if that matters.
