Step by Step Beekeeping Guide

To begin beekeeping, you require honey bees! In place of obtaining honey bees, some beekeepers prefer to find honeybee swarms and catch them into their hives. If you have no experience in catching bees, it’s better not to do it alone. Ask for help of an experienced beekeeper, because if you irritate bees, it could have serious consequences for you and people around you while catching the wild honey bees.

Swarms frequently crowd together on tree branches or other reachable places, like spaces between buildings. In most instances, homeowners want these bees removed. In a few locations, beekeepers may be in a position to acquire wild bees for their hives by listing their names on a ‘swarm retrieval list’ that is fashioned from local 911 calls produced by homeowners. Still, you ought to ask permission from the property owner before your attempt to gather these swarming honey bees.

If you have determined an accessible swarm of honeybees, and would like to get it, this is what one beekeeper advised to do… get a five-gallon plastic bucket with some sort of perforated cover like window screening. Spray the swarm heavily with sugar syrup, place the bucket underneath it then give the branch a sharp shake to dislodge bees into the bucket. Cover the bucket and install the swarm in a hive as you would do with packaged bees.

Beekeepers can also set their hives to attract wild bees. One technique is to put an open container of honey in the new hives. This is easy enough to do, but the manner is likely to attract all sorts of insects, including non-honey bees. Yet an additional way of attracting wild honeybees is to put a frame of empty breed honeycomb within the hives.

Arresting natural or wild honeybee swarms has a good number of disadvantages. There’s no technique to find out, perhaps, whether they are diseased or if the queen that you catch with the swarm is new and has not yet been mated.

Unless you are confident that you realize how swarming occurs and recognize how to protect yourself from a swarm of bees, this is likely not be the best alternative for first-time beekeepers.
