Swarm Trap & Pheromone
Inspired by other bloggers and my cousin Simon I have set up 3 hive traps containing a swarm lure using a pheromone (Nasanov).
I have bought these swarm traps that are made from a moulded fibre material that should last several years and is designed to be like the hollow of a tree.

Beekeeping can either be a full-time profession or a hobby that is simple. However, more often than not, what started as a hobby would become a profession. But you cannot just decide and tell yourself you will start to do beekeeping. You need to have sufficient knowledge and understanding on the subject that you’re going to enter before starting on any avocation or profession. Then it is about time to indulge yourself in your line of interest if you have been putting off your interest in beekeeping for quite a while. Bee farming may look simple; learning the basic beekeeping lessons can allow you to get away to a good beginning.
What does a beekeeper have to know?
First, you should have interest that is total on beekeeping to begin at the right foot. You should have also consented to share your home space. There are possible risks in beekeeping that can hurt you but your family also. Your focus isn’t just to build an income by selling honey; a great beekeeper should have fire and a keen interest in raising bees.
An apiarist ought to know the right place for the beehives. If you decide to put your beehives you need to make sure that beekeeping is enabled in your town. There are several places restricted to beekeeping; you have to get permission relating to this.
Beekeepers must know whether beekeeping supplies can be found in the area where the beehives are situated. When you should visit an area beekeeping shop you may never know; it’s best that a nearby beekeeping store is reachable.
Protective supplies and equipment may also be essential for beekeepers to know. Beekeepers are prone to bee stings; the outfit that is proper must be worn during beekeeping sessions. Know the appropriate suit to select to keep you from any possible risk in beekeeping.
Last but definitely not the least, among the beekeeping lessons you have to know is that: it is not unimportant for the beekeeper to understand the proper way of picking honey. If you’re unable to harvest honey from your bees all the beekeeping efforts would be ineffective. The procedures should be known by a beekeeper in collecting the honey from the comb; beeswax is also part of the returns in beekeeping.
