I'm not going to be ready with all my stuff until next spring and I'm going crazy not being able to start something . My brother in-law dropped off some of his old equipment including a smoker , veil , gloves and two really old garden boxes or nuc style boxes not sure I think there homemade . Anyway I thought maybe I could use one for a swarm box , measurements are 14 1/2 wide x 24'' deep it holds 12 frames that meas. 12'' x12'' there is no foundation on the frames . Would this work , I'll set it out the the field , what can I use for food or attractant as I have no frames with comb , do I put a syrup feeder inside . All new to me so easy on the neebe .
