Making a Bee Swarm Trap

We are grateful you are here

Or A Honey Bee Swarm Box / Russian Scion

Make sure you do NOT use beehive comb just in case it has a disease like AFB. It is against the Bio Security laws to use comb in swarm traps. All bees wax in this video has been boiled.

If you didn’t get the instructions or have lost them you can download a new set here. Swarm Trap for Honey Bees or Russian Scion Instructions

If you live in the Logan area south of Brisbane, here is the council application.

Now make sure you join the group Foster Bees so you can report your swarm to Kerrie Mercel Beekeeper.

When you are ready to buy your own beehive, consider a Long hive to prevent heavy lifting of supers full of honey which way about 30 to 40 kg. Check out what the Queen Bee, Kerrie Mercel builds by clicking here:
