Top Bar Hive - Bee Swarm Box
A swarm box built so fit top bars from my hive.
The inside has old beeswax on it to make the box more attractive to the bees.
I have also attached some old comb from my top bar hive to the new bars with beeswax. This 'should' increase the success rate of bees swarming to this box.
The entrance holes are 12mm wide to prevent pests such as wasps, moths and beetles getting in. I can block the holes easily with a cork when transporting the box to my top bar hive.
