SWARM TRAPS AND BAIT HIVES

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.

    BROOD FRAME

    We provide a used brood frame as this is the best attractant to bring a swarm of honey bees into your bait hive/swarm trap. These have been inspected and no foul brood diseases were found across any apiaries.

  • SWARM LURE

    The vial of swarm lure is a proven recipe for attracting large swarms of honey bees.

     

    It mimics the queen pheromones and attracts scout bees to your swarm traps.

  • ENTRANCE DISC

    The entrance disc is the perfect size to attract swarms into your swarm trap.

     

    Swarms don't like big entrances. Just attach the disc over a hole with a screw.
