Re: Swarm Trap complete!
I imagine that swarms don't necassarily decide on the place to hang out for a time the way they do their preference for a new home, but, 15ft off of the ground on the south side of a tree, ekectric/telephone pole or building is generally prefered by bees when choosing their new home. Besides that, cavity size comes into play. But that has been written about already. I hope that helps answer your question.
