5 Frame Painted Honey Bee Swarm Catching Special

If you want to put out a trap to catch a swarm of bees in, then our 5 frame nuc swarm catching special is the hive that you need! To use as a swarm catcher, simply place the hive on a pallet or on cement blocks wherever you would like to permanently keep the hive - there is no need to place the box up high in a tree. The heavy wax coating on the plastic foundation of the frames will lure the scout bees right to the hive, and in turn, the scout bees will bring the swarm right to the box. As an added bonus, wax moths and other creatures are unable to damage the plastic foundation in the frames, unlike beeswax foundation.

ALL NEW!! All of the frames in our hive set ups are assembled with our custom made Lappe's Premier Triple Extra Extreme Wax Foundation - available exclusively from Lappe's Bee Supply! This foundation has the heaviest coating of 100% beeswax available on the market. The heavier coating of wax helps promote the bees acceptance, and the fresh, natural aroma of the wax helps encourage the bees to start working on it.

Bee Hive Features:

  • Assembled/Painted Deep 9-5/8" 5 Frame Nuc Hive Body with 5 Assembled Wooden Frames FEATURING Lappe's Premier Triple Extra Extreme Wax Foundation
  • Assembled/Painted Telescoping Cover
  • Notched Wooden Inner Cover
  • Your Choice - Assembled/Painted Solid Bottom Board or Screened Bottom Board

This hive is assembled using commercial grade hive body parts; expect some knots & cracks on painted surfaces.

5 frame swarm catcher

Seems well made. It arrived with a crack from shipping. A little glue and Brad's all good.
