I capture a queen honey bee with my fingers, place her in a queen cage and then am able to control where the swarm of honey bees will go as a final destination.
As it turned out, there were two queens in this swarm, so the honey bees divided and went to two separate hives. One Queen attracted twice as many of the workers.
I am wearing surgical gloves and handled the bees directly, including the queen. Surgical gloves gave me a little more grip when handling bees.
In the video below
I get you up close and personal to a swarm of honey bees.
See the waggle dance as scouts return with information.
You will also see and hear what it is like to be right next to a honey bee swarm as they depart for another destination.
