step two


 

In one of your drawers put a piece of old comb Or

 

 

A frame of old comb.  A frame is a bit better because you can just put it in your hive if you catch the swarm quickly enough : )

Old comb really does draw a bees attention.  Above you can see one trying to scavenge a bit of honey in the middle of the frame and it's only april 9th.  Bees were all over my old comb that I had in the shed and my nearest hive is 1/4 mile away.  That's why its rather effective bait for a swarm trap.

Should you want a chunk of old comb.  Email me.  I'll send you out one for a couple bucks postage.  Hopefully the mail man won't completly smash it, but it really shouldn't matter any way because you mainly want the smell.  Bee's have a very sensitive sense of smell.
