Our swarm traps are designed to mimic the hollow of a tree, and they're a favorite home for bee swarms every year. They're made of a molded fiber material that will hold up through many swarm seasons. When used together with our swarm lure, swarm trapping is easy!
For the best chance at success, place your swarm traps at least 6 feet off the ground in a shady area during the day. Scout bees are more likely to find your trap if it's in an easy-to-spot location.
Our swarm lure, which is sold separately, is designed to attract bees by slowly releasing a blend of pheromones, which will convince them to make the trap their new home. Each packet of lure will last for one swarm season in the trap. Once the honey bees have moved in, you can safely transfer them to one of your hives. Safely store unused lures in a freezer or refrigerator.
Beekeepers know that keeping bees is a rewarding, challenging hobby. With a few swarms each year, beekeepers who use our trap will have plenty of bees to collect honey and raise.
