Bees Nest/swarm in the garden

Post by fft100 » Thu May 10, 2018 6:37 pm

Whilst out today a very large swarm of bees has gathered in one of the trees in the garden. I presume they are still looking for an alternative site, or may decide to build a nest where they are. I understand this is a 24 hour decision.

Does anyone in Hua hin collect bees for honey ? If the queen was dropped into a box, the swarm would follow and they could then all be moved to another location. Unfortunately, with young children, I can't really take the risk of leaving them.there.

There's a recent thread about this. Hopefully, you can get some ideas from there.

If you light a small fire with lots of smoke beneath the nest they will move on very quickly
