9602Re: [fukuoka_farming] Free manual Extensive Organic Beekeeping Inspired as taught by Masanobu Fukuoka
- May 7, 2009Oscar,
Welcome! I will download your manual when I go to town; from home my
Internet is too slow.
I have a question here right for you. There is a bee swarm that has
been hovering over our land for a couple of days. They are obviously
looking for a new place to settle. I guess it will be too late now to
go and buy a beehive, but I wonder about the next time, how can I make
them settle in my beehive? I have seen local farmers standing below a
swarm throwing a bundle of cloth at it to make them come down and
settle. I never saw that it actually worked though.
Is this the right way of doing it? Or is there a better way (perhaps
involving color, sound, smells, etc.)? Is it safe to do or do I risk
being stung by numerous bees?
