Re: Whats to go in swarm traps?
I put a swarm in a deep over a Qn excluder, over a SBB. had I thought of it I would have taken a frame of brood to hold them there. Foragers could leave, but not queen. I still have the colony & it's doing well.
@ one of our meetings someone said that they put a frame of brood in a box up under the noses of a swarm & they moved right in. I don't think I would leave the brood too long to get chilled.

I have NOT failed. I have only found many many ways that do not work!
