Swarm Catching Sock This is a design I have came up with for catching swarms that are higher off the ground in trees. We have seen videos of guys on ladders trying to balance nuc or supers to collect a swarm from branch. with the use of a telescoping paint of window squeegee pole swarms up to 30' should be attainable. Doing commercial maintenance I have 24' and 14' telescoping poles. Now I only need to find a net that accepts detachable handles, should be able to find one at the auction. Coming up under a swarm and shake the Swarm Sock against the branch to dislodge the swarm so they fall into the sock and thru the cone into the bottom section. The bees if they try to fly will fly to the netting and not out of the swarm sock. A Branch Hook may also be needed to get enough shake to dislodge the bees successfully. This could be made from a paint roller handle. Discard the roller sleeve and sleeve holder, bend a hook in the metal, attach a rope and use pole to hook over the branch the bees are on. Unscrew if poll is needed for the Swarm Sock.
