This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will rescue a honey bee swarm.

Here are some articles on this.
 - How to Catch a Swarm of Bees
 - Intro to Capturing and Installing Bee Swarms
 - Capturing a Bee Swarm







To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - rescue a honey bee swarm
      - swarm is on a branch or something; move it to a box and then to hive

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - post a two minute video of you rescuing the bee swarm
 
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
