Wood Pulp Honeybee Swarm Trap
Trap Swarms Of Wild Bees With This Wood Pulp Honeybee Swarm Trap
- Made of wood pulp
- Water resistant
- Easy to set up and use
This wood pulp honeybee swarm trap is the most efficient way to trap swarms of wild honeybees. Simply set the trap 8-10 feet off the ground, and the bees will enter through the hole at the end of the bucket. Once you are ready to remove, the bucket detaches from the base. Make sure to check the trap frequently as the captured swarm will create a seal between the bucket and the base, and begin to draw out comb. Capturing honeybees is not only fun and rewarding, but also cost-effective. Since 2007, the price of honeybees has risen dramatically, and there’s no way of telling if these prices will stabilize any time soon. Cost increases aside, it’s now thought that feral bees that enter a trap are more likely to take up residence than honeybees that are bought and placed there without their consent.
This trap works great in conjunction with a lure. We carry vials of Swarm Commander lures, available in packs of 5 or 10. We also sell the recently developed Swarm Commander Super Lure, which is the market leader in pheromone lures.
