Swarm Traps and Bait Hives

The easy way to get bees for free.

Authored by McCartney M Taylor

The definitive guide to catching free bees using swarm traps and bait hives. A comprehensive how-to for beekeepers.

Based on the fact that bees will occupy a cavity of about 40 liters, a swarm trap is made to create the ideal space for a wild swarm to occupy. Thereby the bees come to the beekeeper so that the beekeeper doesn't have to go hunt swarms.
