|Honeybee swarm. 4.25.15|
The swarm settled in a horsechestnut tree. I don't know how to entice them into hives. I sat a Warre hive and a top bar hive near the tree to see if they would be interested. I added some crushed lemon balm leaves. I read they are attracted to lemon grass, but I don't have any around. A also sat a small dish of sugar water in the hive and another one near the hive.
As of this post, a few have buzzed around the hive entrance, but none have ventured inside.
