Swarm trap design, Turning it on its side?
I am thinking of putting together a few swam traps. I have read that you want a volume of 30 to 40 liters. with a 15cm opening at the bottom. I use mediums and was thinking of using a 8 frame medium size box that is placed on its side. (long ways) bottom facing the tree. The frames would go in up and down.
I figure that this way I can take the trap down the bees will alread be of the right size frames.
My question is will the bee have a problem with the frames going up and down?
Seem like a good idea? Any input from seasoned beekeepers would be appreciated
