Swarm trap idea???
I plan on making some swarm traps out of thin material like luan with reinforced corners (not really interested in using hive bodies due to weight) . I plan on making them close to the size of a 10 frame deep. My question is this, instead of filling them full with 8 or 9 frames I thought I would put one frame of drawn dark comb(for the scent) and two frames of foundation. I am Simply trying to cut down on weight and frames, I know that some of you swarm heads will have a thought or two on this, and I thank you!
