It’s swarming season! When the weather warms up, and outdoor activity is encouraged for honey bees, you may notice swarms in your bee yard. Spring is usually when bees swarm and look for new real estate to call home for the upcoming seasons. When the time comes, you will want to be prepared for any swarm heading your way.
As scout bees split from the hive to look for a new home, our Swarm Lure emits a slow-release blend of pheromones that attracts the swarm and entices the honey bees to declare the Swarm Trap a suitable new home for the bee colony. Home sweet home, at last. Swarms can easily be caught with lures and swarm traps in an empty hive in your bee yard. The more, the merrier!
Swarm lures are an effective, hands-off way to attract more bees to your bee yard. Once you get the bees in the trap, cross your fingers that they’re impressed with the new home and decide to stay.
NOTE: This product consists of one individual vial.
The lure comes in a packet. Use one packet per trap. Store unused lures in a freezer or refrigerator. Each lure will last approximately one swarm season in the trap. Style may vary.
