I've been getting swarm traps ready to set out.
I'm using a box made of 3/4 inch plywood that I put a deep frame of cone foundation in.
The boxes are 19 7/8 x 11 1/4 inches and 10 1/2 inches deep and a 1 1/4 hole for an entrance with a guard installed to keep out birds.
I'm using a queen phermone I got from Brushy Mountain Bee Farm and some I'm using Lemon Essence Oil.
The weather is warming up quick around here and I had a friend say he found queen cells in one of his hives.
