Minimal painting needed for these.
Jason, my name is Tim. I built 10 swarm traps to put out this spring. I have swarm commander, lemongrass oil and old comb ready to go. I am in Ohio so it is still early. Any secrets to success you can share?
If you read much of the material on this site you will see I don’t keep many secrets. Depending on where you live in Ohio the middle of April would probably be a good time to get your traps up. Target places that are likely to be holding bees and get your traps 1 – 1.5 miles away. Don’t put them all in 1 location. In the HOW TO… section I have the Trapping Quick Reference there’s a lot of tips in there. Good luck Tim. Keep me posted of your progress. I like pictures of swarms occupying traps so if you get any send em my way. I’ll be putting them on my facebook page this year.
