My friend has a swarm that has made a home in a hollow log bird house hanging on his fence in the backyard. He said that he can see their nest in there, and lots of bees, but he is not a bee guy and not sure if they are bees or not, first of all he does not know that there is a difference in flying insects that sting. I think that honeybees are the only ones that draw comb and if he saw comb he's got a swarm. I have an empty foundation hive ready to go, so my question is, do you think I can catch it? It sounds like the log might be small enough to nearly fit into the hive box, but if not, can I dump them out of it and into the box? Would I spray them with syrup like I did my packaged bees before I do anything? Do I just need to dig through and find the queen if I have to dump them out, or just dump them out? Also, the queen of a swarm is the old one...do I need to requeen? And my package is still very small, only two weeks old, can I add those bees to my package, sans their queen, to bump up the numbers? I feel pretty confident that I can catch a swarm, just not sure exactly how to do it...any advice would be appreciated!
