Summary

The definitive guide to catching free bees using swarm traps and bait hives. A comprehensive how-to for beekeepers.
Based on the fact that bees will occupy a cavity of about 40 liters, a swarm trap is made to create the ideal space for a wild swarm to occupy. This way the bees come to the beekeeper so that the beekeeper doesn't have to go hunt swarms.

Very exciting!

Great book! I cant wait to get started catching swarms. The book was very informative and encouraging to a bait hive virgin such as myself. Highly recommend this book to anyone who wants free bees.

Fun and informative!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Interested in Bee keeping? When the narration began, my first thought was...ugh, boring narrative! But soon my husband and I were riveted. Amidst the importation of lots of info about the subject, the narrator often interjected notes of humor, unexpected and refreshing. Not just a listing of fact and opinion, the author obviously enjoys his subject and sharing his knowledge with others.
