Swarm catch sack to retrieve swarms from tree branches or other out-of-reach locations. The cloth sack is supported by an approx 16-inch diameter steel ring that mounts on a pole (optional / not included) such as a broom handle or telescoping extension pole. Once the swarm has been captured you can pull on the string from the ground to close the hinged lid of the sack. To empty the bees, untie the closure at the bottom of the sack to dump the bees into a hive.
