If i get a swarm in a bucket how do i go about putting them into my hive and not having them all fly away? I do not run any TBH, but I would suggest just dumping them in, letting them settle, closing up the top, feed syrup and leave them alone for several days.
Yes, he was only talking about lifting up the top to dump them in, then closing the top back up. But the entrance should always stay open, otherwise you'll just have dead bees the next day.And by close you mean leave the way in open right?
