I've built a swarm trap that accommodates my top bars. My homemade design is a rectangle wooden box, which holds 8 bars. Has anyone had success with this shape swarm box. Should have I incorporated slanted side like my hives?
My thinking is that since I will be checking in on the swarm traps, that I should be able to prevent any comb build up on the sides. Building a box is easy and uncomplicated.
I'd like to hear how others have succeed with trapping and moving swarms from a trap to a hive.
