I bought 10 pressed fiber swarm traps and they cost $190.00
I decided to buy 32 pressed fiber pots from a nursery supply company.
They were 12x11 inches.
I put 2 together, filled in all the holes except 1, glued alittle old comb in the back and baited it with lemon grass oil.
I made 16 traps for $55.00.
Here is a picture of one.
The 1st picture is a 16x13 pressed fiber pot mounted to plywood.
Notice the bees working, they took it.

The second picture is of the 12x11 pressed fiber pots.
The 3rd picture is a swarm trap bought from a bee supply catalog.
They run around $23.50 each.
Every trap I put lemon grass oil in has caught.
Every trap I had Queen Pheromone in zilt, no bees.
