    Re: Swarm traps and Bees Just maybe!!!

    TomG right on the money....

    I posted this in Difference between a HIT and a CATCH. You don't want to move them too early. I've seen them visit traps in large numbers for days to weeks...

    Re: Swarm trap disaster

    Sorry to hear your troubles. I have learned such lessons in beekeeping. I too do the same thing. As soon as pollen is entering I try to get them moved and hived.

    Re: 10 frame deep as swarm trap

    I put screws in my first nine boxes just as you describe back in 2011. I did my next 9 traps without the screws. The last 10 were constructed without the screws. As long as you are using a strap,...

    Re: How high does the trap have to be?

    You will get all kinds of responses here. I would recommend putting it in a location that does not require the use of a ladder. Just for safety reasons. I used to put them all at 10 feet until...

    Re: Question about Bait hives or Swarm Traps

    iivydriff: I would say it probably has absolutely no bearing on whether a swarm pics your trap or not. As stated in other responses most feral hives I find have multiple entrances. If you don't...

  19. Re: Lost three hives this winter need swarms but when to put out traps

    As a rule humans are bad at predicting the future.... You are a lot more likely to catch swarms if you have traps made and up. My established hives came through the winter strong. I think there...

    Alright. That looks like a good one.
  21. Re: Lost three hives this winter need swarms but when to put out traps

    Now is fine for putting up traps. I will be putting mine up over the next 2-3 weeks. I never treat the frames I take from deadouts. If the hive was dead and it froze for 48 hours afterwards moth...

    I have had that 2 times. Can you see the queen crawling around on the outside? Both times they eventually left. Let us know the outcome.

    Re: Synthetic Queen Lures - Thoughts?

    Pheromone and LGO in combination may work best, but for the money LGO alone works well in Indiana. Maybe if I wasn't so cheap I'd catch more bees. Experiment and keep us all posted.

    Re: indiana traps set

    Beeditch: that's a great sign. In my area those types of locations produce swarms. So every time you take down a full trap put up a new one right away....

    Good luck.
