Capturing a Swarm

A Beepods Beekeeper uses a Decoy Queen box in order to draw bees to it so that he can find the living queen. By clipping a queen’s wings he demonstrates polite neighborhood behavior in an urban setting. They transfer bees from a Langstroth that has swarmed to a new Beepod so that there is plenty of room for now two colonies to grow and be healthy.
