I’ve got 30 acres of bush in Mt Barker , WA, Australia and have just set some swarm traps.
This is my first ever attempt so need help.
I’ve set 3 empty supers with frames. All have some foundation, some foundation less and some drawn comb.
All also have an earbud of lemongrass oil.
Is it best to be close to their hives or far away?
Some state to have them 2m high but I’ve placed mine on 200 drums, making them about 1200mm high. All are north facing with trees and shrub behind.
