Re: Swarm Trap Picture
Wow Snookie that is a well constructed swarm trap and depending on the size of the bottom dimension it looks about 40 liters. Whether it will work or not you can never know for sure. You can increase your odds by adding old brood comb, lemon grass oil or swarm lure but the bees may still just fly on by. The only limit I can see to your design is it's weight. You still have to carry it and maybe even hang it, unless of course you're just using it in your back yard. I'm setting out about 36 this year in a 25 mile radius, hanging them in trees of shelter belts and on the sides of old buildings. So I designed mine for transportability and ease of placement. I leave my top covers at home and just use corrugated plastic to cover the top bars until I bring the swarm home. Mine look like this https://www.dropbox.com/sh/34l58y2kbcg9pil/OlZmxiIvXh Good luck and good trapping.
