Question: Do you think that we, as beekeepers should allow any feral swarm we catch to swarm once?
Yes - that way the #'s return to the wild
N- They are mine and are not wild anyways.
No - Bees shouldn't be wild only kept.
Yes - That way I can catch more later.

i've captured 12 swarms so far this year, had 4 swarms move on before i arrived, & have done 3 removals from buildings. 1 swarm was a repeat from a location i caught one from last year.  i got 6 calls for swarms that were too far away for me to go to. i know of 9 feral colonies in trees within 12 miles of my house. so around here anyway there seems to be a healthy feral population. i'll prevent my hives from swarming if i can.

That is good business. Others rear swarms and you catch them-

That is  "you release, me catch" method.
