Swarm Control

Swarm Control

Date: 1921
Creator: Demuth, Geo. S. (George S.)
Description: "The tendency [of bees] to swarm can be reduced by the introduction of superior stock by the use of well-arranged hives and good combs, and by management which prevents a congestion of bees in the brood nest. Swarming, therefore, can be prevented to a large extent by proper equipment and management. The conditions which reduce the congestion in the brood-nest (preventive measures) are at the same time the conditions which induce the bees to work with the greatest energy in gathering nectar. When remedial measures are employed, the manipulation is such that the colony is thrown into a condition comparable either to the swarm or to the parent colony in nature." -- p. 2. Also includes a discussion of the factors which may induce bees to swarm.
