FREE BEES!: Capturing a Swarm

This video shows what a swarm looks like and one method for capturing a swarm into a hive and adding this new colony to your bee yard. You will also witness how the honey bee uses a specialized gland, the Nosanov Gland, to release a pheromone, one of it's many communication tools, to draw bees into the hive. A varroa mite can also be spotted hitching a ride on a bee within the swarm.
