A report on KSL.com today indicated that a swarm of bees at a local movie theatre was killed as it appeared threatening to theatre patrons. This is a shame, and scouts can help to prevent such unnecessary loss in the future. Become confident beekeepers and carry your beekeeping suit with you at all times so you are ready to capture and protect swarms when you find them. Even if you don’t have your gear, in a situation like this you can still save a swarm. Generally a swarm can be handled without protective gear and any old cardboard box or even a large grocery sack will suffice to do an emergency swarm capture. Help save the bees, and remember to keep your pants hitched up properly and don’t walk like a sloth in traffic while you’re at it!
