The definitive guide to catching free bees using swarm traps and bait hives. A comprehensive how-to for beekeepers.
Based on the fact that bees will occupy a cavity of about 40 liters, a swarm trap is made to create the ideal space for a wild swarm to occupy. This way the bees come to the beekeeper so that the beekeeper doesn't have to go hunt swarms.

Great book! I cant wait to get started catching swarms. The book was very informative and encouraging to a bait hive virgin such as myself. Highly recommend this book to anyone who wants free bees.
Interested in Bee keeping? When the narration began, my first thought was...ugh, boring narrative! But soon my husband and I were riveted. Amidst the importation of lots of info about the subject, the narrator often interjected notes of humor, unexpected and refreshing. Not just a listing of fact and opinion, the author obviously enjoys his subject and sharing his knowledge with others.
The narrator/author was awesome. very funny and personable. He was very easy to listen to and is a wealth of information. Great book for anyone...new bee keeper or old who wants to catch feral bee swarms for their apiary.
