[attachment=6:2yt2dyqy]2.jpg[/attachment:2yt2dyqy]Catch a swarm of bees
This is the cloth that is slightly more expensive than cotton, lycra and ... ..., ductile thick fabric, glides through the trees.
Bottom through which after catching bees in the hive out, is not related
but has a plug that can be removed easily when you pull down with one stroke of a whole
CATCH remains in the form of hives, possibly half the hive if the
catches laterally from the trunk.
No kneading bees. All can be seen in Figures A, writes down what is what.
Otherwise, this springs from the belt in the car, and they may be from vacuum cleaners, that part
automatic winding, it has a spring which is a little tricky to remove
because it wants to jump out
It is in my hot steel, which is and has always returned to his position.
You need 3 a piece, two to capture a one to form the lower part of type strainer that does not make
Catcher works to be opened by pulling the silk, nylon for
Fishing Tackle.
Signs are open pupils, position the bracket to the position of swarm-poles
put a length corresponding to 3-4 feet or whatever, then approach the
swarm, I let the silk ones spring to return the desired closed position, literally
bite the branch on which there is a swarm and then moving the spring down a role
jaw, which follows the shape of the branches so that the bas bees from pleace.
When you move from branch automatically closes, and the swarm is closed.
Impossible to say that it works in a suit and tie, but it is much easier to manage with such a trap.
A large part of the bee gets caught up when I have to fly or are already
You can direct them to park up the hive and let them open the cap and
them to direct the hive or to pour into it.
The bass is simply just has one problem which can easily stain because it is made ??of canvas, and
noo always like to look nice.
From prototype to final solution, any more so this is not only
mine, except ideas and metal is all hers, and sponge around the springs that are not strong
that do not make a lot of pressure on bees and complete the look, ie aesthetics.
It's not expensive, and not simply to be made.
If someone is not clear how and what,
you should ask.

Ingenious design Spomenko,do you have any pics showing the working mechanisms like how the closing strings are fixed to the capture bag and how it's attached to the pole?

I could've sure used that catcher last month when 2 of my hives swarmed and landed 20 to 25 ft' up in a tree.

On the picture items to pass twine.
bolt welded to the addition.
additives in the tubes that are inserted rod and so is tied to one below the other,
screws go through as much rope is a long pole.
pull rope openly,
let twine closed.
to see how an image is stitched rope.
and Figure 2 you can see where to go rope reins.

I had no need for a length of 7 m.
Although the kit I sent to friends 2 times 2.5 m plus 1 m for the capture angle.
It is 6 m plus the height of a man, a total of 7-8m that is 25 ft.
film an picasa ... directlink

Spomenko- Great pictures. Thanks for posting. The video gives a much clearer idea of how it works. Could have used the same myself this summer. :goodpost:
