Possibly, we just got our farm, so I trying not to spend more money...

Is there anything else I can do to encourage the queen and the rest of the hive to scoot over my way? Or is that just up to her when they swarm?

Howdy! I have a bee trap up and have caught one good swarm and am going for my second. Two weeks ago, I was getting a lot of daytime activity, what looked like the last swarm I got, but after a full week of activity, when I transferred the trap to the hive, there were only a few dozen inside and they left a few hours later.

For the past week, I've gotten a ton of activity again in the daytime. But I just peeked inside (full dark outside) and there were only a few (less than 100-ish) moving around inside. The daytime activity is as much or more than the last swarm I got, but now it looks like another dud. The trap is loaded with used, empty comb on a frame.

Am I missing something? Do they just need more time? Do they rob the old wax and head home? Bees are confusing...

Hiya,

For my first post, I have a question on electric fence.

I was given a red snapper continuous current electric fence charger. I have a pulsing charger that's outside my sheep pen deterring the dog and other hungry wildlife. I have heard stories of electric fences starting grass fires and I'm in the west with a relatively heavy dry weed load. I've tried to find more info on the continuous current chargers, but have been out of luck.

If it's safe to use, I can swap them and put the pulsing charger to work some where else.

Anything else I should know about continuous chargers?

Thanks everyone!
