    Default First swarm trap catch

    Yesterday I noticed there was a swarm in a trap I set up about 3 weeks ago. This is my first time using swarm traps, I don't know how long they have been in it but I noticed they are bringing in pollen. Just thought I'd share a couple pics:

    Thanks for the pictures! They help getting a better understanding of how and where swarm traps should be positioned... Is the opening facing west?

    Yes, since you mentioned it the opening was facing west, I never intended it to it just worked out that way....
