So far, my luck this year with bee swarms hasn't been the best, 1 little one, better then nothing, but nothing like last year's. But, I have been successful at trapping ants, the big, black, nasty ones! And I can't seem to get rid of them, either. We have pulled the hive all apart sweeping out every ant, used cinnamon in a big circle around it, and eggs shells and they aren't bothered by any of it. I really don't want to go to ant traps and I don't think the property owner would like it either, but I am on the verge of pulling the trap even though I don't think this bee tree has swarmed yet.
