My first swarm I used a couple cardboard boxes because that is what I had on hand. Used a medium sized box to shake the bees into and then placed that box inside a larger box for transport. Figured that in case some bees got out of the inner box I would still have the larger one to keep them from buzzing around in my jeep.

Now I am taking a spare deep and am thinking of screwing a piece of plywood to the bottom of it. Would put in a few frames and make a lid with latches on the side to hold it shut during transport. Will drill some tiny holes in the lid for ventilation.

This sound like a plan? What do you guys use?
