Swarming is the honey bee’s method of colony reproduction. The old queen and about half of the worker bees leave their former nest and seek a new home. This can happen anytime from April to September in the UK. 

You can set up a swarm trap in your garden in order to attract a swarm of honey bees. It's best to get your traps set up early in the season to stand the best chance of catching a prime swarm of bees. 

We provide a low budget, swarm trap kit with all of the key components to help you attract a swarm of honey bees into your bait hive/swarm trap.

 

You just add plywood or a new/used beehive in order to complete the kit. 

This listing includes the following items:

1 x DN4 Disease Free Dark Wax Brood Frame
1 x Vial of Commercial Swarm Lure
1 x Metal Entrance Disc
1 x Cutting List to make your own plywood swarm trap/nucleus box.
1 x List of Instructions on how to set up a swarm trap

We provide an A4 copy of a cutting list so you can make your own swarm trap. You can also set up a bait hive with any new or used beehive.
