friday May 6: swarm catch, trapout, beevac

I spent most of the day buying/building a bee vac.

I build something based on what i've seen/used with others.
Don't know if it gonna work though.

Took a quick shot last night 11pm it was almost finished:

I am helping in a trapout.
The home owner produced a trapout device using plastic bottles.I really like his idea.
He installed it at night when the bees weren't flying.
I sweeped a lot of bees from the wall into a box with comb & honey and put it in close range.
Let's hope they move in!

Last catch of the day was a swarm that had been hanging there for at least 3 days.
This was a really easy catch
