    He is not attracting a swarm at all. If you will notice that the bottom skep is upside down and full of bees and the upper skep is empty. What he is doing is moving the bees from the bottom skep to the top one. This actually works, I did it years ago with some Warre hives I bought. Turned them upside down and placed a Lang hive over them and went to drumming on the sides.

    The video is from Romainia. Not sure about the skeps though, they do not have a cow dung covering on the outside. I would say they are getting the bees out so they can rob the lighter colored comb out of the bottom skep.

    Drumming to remove bees. It dose work. I wonder if it would work for getting bees out of a trap out?

    What kind of other answers did you get?

    Just took it that it was from Romania since that was where the maker of the video was from.

    Yes there is such a thing, some call it "tanging". Beating on the bottom of a metal dish pan seems to work well. You will need to be in the middle of a flying swarm and this gets them to land or settle on something instead of flying away. I will not say this will attract a swarm into a hive, it just gets them to land on something and start to cluster.

    I remenber dad doing this when he caught a hive swarming, he told me the sound gave the effect of thunder and the bees would group faster and not go so far for him to get.

    Driving bees.

    The man beating the hive is 'driving' the bees into the empty top hive.
    The honey and wax in the bottom hive can now be collected.
    In the 19 C, skilled bee 'drivers' could travel to apiaries doing this (chargeable) service.

    Driving bees is a way of harvesting from a skep hive without killing the bees.
