Catch Box for bees  -*Shipping not included*

We supply catch boxes or trap boxes for bees made from plywood with an entrance blocker included and all frames with wire and wax strips!

These boxes are best suited for catching a trekking swarm as the smaller vulnerable colony prefers about 30L volume of space when choosing a new residence.

The catch boxes are usually either 5 or 6 frame boxes also known as nucs. The frames are interchangeable or transferable to a brood chamber as they made the same size and dimensions. They can come with plain lids or aluminium lids for extra protection!

Benefits of a catch box:

  • Smaller volume size for optimum space of 30L
  • Cheaper to start with than a full bee hive
  • More trap boxes means more honeybee colonies which means faster apiary growth
  • Trap boxes are easier to move around and pack into cars/bakkies.
  • Made from plywood which is easy to repair
  • All coated in Waksol weather treatment
  • Transfer full frames into a brood chamber


These nuc boxes or catch boxes are placed 1.5-1.8m high to catch the strongest colonies that are trekking. Face the boxes EAST.

People who bought these catch boxes also bought our Swarm Lure sachet which is a swarm attractant sachet for R35 find it here
