I've been reading past threads about swarm traps and how to bait/position them. I have access to several areas of land that I could try setting out a swarm trap, but all are about 1 hour drive from my hives. If I ended up with a swarm would it be as simple as plugging the entrance hole to confine them while I drive them back to their new home?

Thanks,
Chris

Pretty much. Do it at night so all the gals are home. I would cover the entrance with #8 hardware cloth to allow some air flow while they travel.
