Re: Swarm Traps - In the city: Anyone Doing it?
I live very rural but catch most of my swarms in town. Whenever someone calls me for a swarm or cutout I encourage them to let me place multiple swarm traps on their place the following year. I know there are bees present because I just had to remove them. These sites tend to work very well. I know of one house in a local town that is basically abandoned. It has been willed to several survivors who cannot agree on the disposition of the property. Meanwhile bees have moved in. The locals there think that I have caught three swarms from that house so far this year. I would much rather catch a swarm than have to do a cutout.
When you stop learning you're dead.
