The guy I got my bees from and I were talking the other day and he started talking about swarms. What he had thought of was sticking a broom handle in the ground with the broom sticking up. Then he said he was going to wrap the broom with burlap and wet it with lemongrass oil. He wondered if that might work. I told him I'd run it up the pole here at the forum, because that's where all the brainpower is! I thin he was thinking mainly in case one of his hives swarmed, not necessarily a feral swarm. Has anyone tried this? What do y'all think of the chance of success.
