I have been trying to find Pic's of the Swarm Harvester but haven't been able to find it. I have a friend that I would like to show it to. Does this Guy use a Bee Escape to keep the bee's from returning to the original hive??? Thanks for any help. Dale
I cannot find the original item but the picture gives you an idea of how it works. Though the images specifies a top bar hive, it doesn't need to be. The item in question is available from kellybees.com. Evidently, they designed their site to be more confusing, so I cannot find the direct link. Why are all bee supplier web sites so hard to use?
I am using this setup on a bee tree right now and getting good results. I's not the one from Kelly, but something I fabbed up myself.
Kelly's doesn't have a funnel in it either. It is used to expand the hive area, in the bees' thinking. There is a thread here where it is talked about, I'll try and find it. Found it, actually there were several.
