Yesterday, we were attempting to coax a swarm into a lure. 24 hours had past, and the swarm took to the air and moved to a small tree about 50 ft away.

Tiring of the chase, and motivated by the opportunistic perch just a few feet from the ground, I decided to physically put the bees in the lure box.

One in position, I gave the branch a tug. The whole ball fell right into the box. This afternoon, I went to check if they stayed.

Well, see for yourself!
