Taranov Swarm Procedure-Controlled Swarming. All bees from the would-be swarm shaken onto a sheet in front of the hive.
(A. Forar)
The sheet is spread over a propped up board with the high end 100mm
from the hive entrance.
(A. Forar)
The swarming bees crawl under the board and form a cluster while the
non-swarming  bees fly back into the hive.
Later in the day, the swarming bees had separated from the parent colony
and were successfully rehived.
