This is my first year with my own hives, and I am still learning. We caught a swarm about 3 weeks ago from an older established hive. But I also have 4 package hives outside and there are quite a few beekeepers in this area with hives.
My question is this, should I go ahead and put out bait hives, and if so will this make my hives more apt to swarm?
I dont have any drawn comb or used hives to put out. All are new and have mostly undrawn wax. I do have some of the pheromones from Rossman. Should I go ahead and put the in the hives or use LGO?
