Swarm Lure


Recommended Add-ons

Product Details


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.

    Worked for me!

    by RVA-HobbyHive on Mar 31, 2024

    Purchased it a few years ago but ended up not using it until last year. It sat in my freezer for about a year (not recommended). I had three empty hives and put one drop in the center of the middle frame and one drop in front of the entrance. Within a week I had bees move into two of the three hives. Only one ended up staying but I can verify this stuff works.

    Bee lure

    by D Bartilson on Mar 14, 2024

    I've used this product several times. Works great to bring swarms into the hive. Single deep box, empty frames with comb, one with honey, and the lure.

    Too strong

    by MICHAEL RAMEY on Feb 06, 2024

    Caught a swarm, but they didn't want to move inside the box. It had one of these on the inside. My thoughts is that the scent let off was too strong and repelled the bees from going in.
