Catching a Swarm with a Vacuum Box

6-12-21 Yesterday late afternoon a huge bull swarm of honeybees lit way down deep inside a bush next to my driveway. To make sure I got all the bees and the single queen I had to use the vacuum box I built just for this type of thing, it sucks them right into a brood box. I also made an adjustment on the top to regulate the suck power to not hurt the bees. Check this out!! This hive will make #20.
