    Default Swarm-catching-box

    Hello,
    sun is coming back ! It's time to build a sensible swarm catching box for easy handling and safe transportation
    as seen on this french Warré forum
    une cage à essaim (swarm cage)

    important issues
    - build Light
    - velcro band
    - queen excluder
    - adapt the dimensions to the inner ones of your favorite NUC box so you can pour them in easilly
    - 1 inch thick for the floor "frame" so you have an easy way-in for the girls when left diagonaly open, even in dense grass.

    some argue that the swarm may re-form on the both sides of the net-windows , men could add some hiding stuff either in wood or paperboard
