Re: Number of frames in a trap?
Swarms build comb quickly. Swarm season is a busy time for me. Late in the swarm season I sometimes like to leave swarms in the trap longer so that an unmated queen can mate. Having to do a cutout from the trap is easily avoided by putting as many foundationless frames as will fit pushed up against the frame with drawn comb.
