Product Code: CO-1300

Swarming can be a major headache for beekeepers. The pheromone can be used to increase the probability of catching honey bee swarms in empty hive from local and area hives. The synthetic pheromone is the precise copy of the naturally occurring pheromone.

Sold in pack of 5 tubes.

Setting up bait hives :

Use an empty preferably previously used hive with at least one old frame. The hive should have a bottom entrance. Attach SwarmCatcher lure with a pushpin to one of the frames closer to the entrance. (There is a loop at the top of the lure). Do not open pr puncture the tube! The pheromone will naturally diffuse through the vial's wall.


Things to take into consideration during set up :

Set up the bait hive between 3 and 10 feet (1 and 3 m) above the ground. Make sure the location is shaded which aides hive ventilation. Hives in the sun can be abandoned due to overheating. Hives with the entrance facing south have greater chance of getting occupied by a swarm. Make sure the hive is dry and free of other insect.
