  1. Hi Roger,

    Most beekeepers order their bees through the mail. What I like about Kirk’s method of keeping feral bees is that they are better adapted to the local conditions. Funny thing is–capturing a swarm like this is easier than installing the mail order bees.

  2. The best way is to catch them in a swarm bait box, same thing as that little 5 frame nuc he used just use fully built up frames, hang some in trees around where bees are know to roam and cross your fingers. I got two last year this way, they make the most beautiful hives as opposed to cutouts.
