- Aug 5, 2014Hi Susan:Thanks a lot for your quick response.
I am glad there is life around the TB Hives!And as I am typing this message, I can see lots of replies!
Actually, I have read McCartney Taylor’s e-book on “Swarm Traps and Bait Hive“.
I also looked up Wyatt Mangum’s site. Quite informative. I visited his site a couple of weeks ago (and I have ordered his book) but I only discovered his section on bait hives last night.
I understand his bait hives are just smaller TBHs with the same bar size as his regular hives, which I think is clever because it make transfer straightforward, without destroying what the swarm may have built.
I’ll build a couple of these bait hives, both styles --McCartney and Mangum-- until next February and I’ll let you know how successful they will be!CheersJean-Louis
