Subby why do you think the two have any relation to each other in any possible way?

Once at an old job in a cubicle farm, I had my manager step in to my cubicle, pause, fart, and leave.

My bees swarmed last Thursday, and bunched up in the top of a jasmine vine plant. I had been trying to lure them into an empty hive (that had colony collapse last year from small hive beetles).

They may have gone to the hive by themselves, but I forced the issue by knocking them into a plastic container and dumping them into the empty hive. I suppose I must have landed the queen, but it's hard to tell at first. . They seem to have accepted it as their new home for now, and have been going in and out of the entrance, hopefully building up new combs.

Using homemade top-bar (or horizontal) hives. Initially use lemon grass essential oil as an attractant - it's supposed to mimic queen bee pheromones.
