Hi all,

I've found a lot of posts on how far to put traps from existing hives, but not a lot of info on how close I can put swarm traps to each other. How close can I go without either confusing the scouts or splitting a swarm? The area I can trap has many small fields separated by pretty dense woods (but not wider than 100 yards). From my surveys of the area there's almost no honeybees in the area (lots of other bees though), I don't think anyone has had bees in this area for a long time, with the exception of me (no swarms yet, hives are new starts).

Thanks,

-Jason
