I saw this on youtube and thought it worth sharing. A simple project to make a bait hive/nuc box from old pallet wood. Some hand tools an a circular saw needed.

Swarm traps using pallets




Swarm season is fast approaching so it would make lots of sense to build a batch of these up now! I have a bunch of local sites in mind where swarms were seen or collected last year, plus I have some old brood comb to place in them. I'm using top bar hives for my personal apiary, but langstroth poly hives at school where we are just getting set up, so I'll probably go for langstroth frame size.
