8-Frame Swarm Bandit
SKU: 2558 - Swarm Bandit - 8-F
" What would you give to catch the swarm before it flew away from the hive to rest on a branch 40 feet off the ground? Would it not be nice to trap them at the hive entrance before they were able to fly a few feet away from the hive. Here is your opportunity. An innovative design from Orr Bee supply, the Swarm Bandit slides into the entrance of a hive once signs of swarming are apparent. When swarming occurs, the queen becomes trapped inside the ventilated compartment, preventing them from leaving the hive. Slide the reducer to trap the swarm and remove the hive, place into entrance of a different, empty hive and open the reducer to allow swarm to flow into their new home. A frame of brood will entice them into their new hive and give them a jump start. You now have captured a swarm without climbing a ladder and cutting down a branch. Fits 8 frame hive "
