Beekeeper's Advice: The cotton fuel is great for quick trips or for a few colonies. Use the wood pellets for longer trips. Think of the wood pellets as 'logs' on the fire. They can't be beat for extended burn time but need some time to get started.
Swarm Trap & Lure
Give your swarming colony an ideal “home”! Designed to mimic the hollow of a tree, a favorite home for swarms. Our Swarm Trap is constructed of a molded fiber material that will hold up through many swarm seasons. When used in conjunction with a Swarm Lure, swarming honeybees find our Swarm Traps irresistible! Our Swarm Lure emits a slow-release blend of pheromones that attracts the swarm and entices the scout bees to declare the Swarm Trap a suitable new home! Simply attach a closed Swarm Lure envelope to the lid on the inside of the Swarm Trap with a thumb tack or staple. Use one packet per trap. Store unused lures in a freezer or refrigerator. Each lure will last approximately one swarm season in the trap.
