I thought I would have one soon and was preparing a place but it wasn't ready yet. I quickly pulled out my old Black and Decker Workmate and put one of my old hives from last year on it. I grabbed a frame of wax with some nectar from another hive and put in a feeder. During this time Mandi had called my dad and he came over to lend a hand. He used to have nine hives and had captured several swarms before.
I decided to get a box and then shook the remaining bees into it. I then dumped these bees into the hive with the rest of the bees. I couldn't guarantee that I had gotten the queen but felt pretty good that I had. I noticed about 1000 bees making a new ball in the tree and that had me worried. About that time I noticed a very small ball of bees forming on the outside of the hive. I gently ran my finger under the ball and the queen walked right out of it onto my hand! I couldn't believe it. That was a real blessing. I put my hand down into the hive and she walked off of my finger into the bees.
I put the top on the bees and noticed that the small ball in the tree was gone. There were about 50 bees on the front porch of the hive with their abdomens in the air and flapping their wings. I assume they are putting out the chemicals to let the remaining bees know where to come to. About two hours later I went out and several bees were doing orientation flights.
This was not only a lot of fun but was also a great learning experience for me. Here's a link to the Youtube video.
