Constructed of a molded fiber material (feels like a rough cardboards but weather resistant) to resemble the hollow of a tree, this swarm trap will last for many seasons. Simply place high in a tree and bait to attract a swarm of honeybees. Once they move in, plug the entrance and move them to your bee yard to be installed in your hive. We have had very good fortune with this style trap over the years, even though the books say the bees typically prefer cavities slightly larger than this. The bees know best.
*Pro Tip – Place the trap in an easy to see spot, ties it down (string will do) and check daily or every other day. When bees move in, they are on a mission to build wax. You’ll want them to put that effort into drawing comb on frames, not this swarm trap.
