The honeybee swarm lure helps to attract passing swarms, and to lure swarms temporarily hanging in trees and other awkward places into a skep or box containing the swarm attractant. It will even reduce the risks of swarms leaving the apiary if a bait hive contains the attractant.
One wipe is R50 and a BOX is R500 excluding post. Shipping is not included.
It comes in a small sachet and resembles a cleansing wipe. It is impregnated with essential oils extracted from plants.
We post or courier most areas in South Africa when the post office is not striking!!
To activate, the sachet can be pierced or torn open and hung in an empty hive, skep or other suitable container, or it can be wiped over the surface of the container.
Rigorous university research has shown that the lure attracts 60-90% of swarms.
Each box contains 10 Honeybee Swarm lures sachets. It is recommended that the honeybee swarm lure is placed in a trap box or brood chamber around 1.8m high to attract stronger colonies.
Research shows stronger colonies fly higher up than weaker colonies. Take advantage of this finding by placing catch boxes above 1.6m in order to catch the stronger colonies.
We can post a box of 10 [R500] Swarm Lures for R50 each anywhere in South Africa! Also available in SADC Region for R120 postage for surface mail. It will take about 3 weeks to reach destination.
