Getting ready for the Cooma Swarm season


#1

In anticipation of a few more swarms than last year I’m making up 10 swarm catching boxes each box contains 5 frames and is 10 cm deeper then a normal box hopefully this will allow the bees to accommodate themselves to their new home then move up into the frames from there they can be transplanted into a larger hive so they can get on with their business

Sounds like a smart approach!
