    BAIT HIVES - what's your success rate?

    Set one up last year on top of my shed with old frames of wax and a squashed queen rubbed around the entrance, caught 2 swarms one within 24 hours of placing it there, nothing this year but as yet don't need any.

    Artificial Swarm Today

    Hi, i would have transfered the queen over on a frame of brood and also left the supers on so that the returning field bees have somewhere to place there store's and no need to feed.

    Double brood swarm options

    2 of my 4 hives are currently on double brood, although no queen cells at the moment what are my options when this happens, also read the Demaree method of swarm prevention why are the supers placed inbetween the brood boxes and not just left on top if you don't want queen cells. thanks.
