|[News Item #23] 5-Frame Trap Hives|
High quality, lightweight 5-frame trap hives produced.
We have produced a quality trap hive that will last quite a few seasons and is light enough for easy handling. The weight is crucial especially when removing that precious swarm from a tree at the top of a high ladder. Although the hive is lightweight the s-shaped corner struts, made from solid pine, give the hive structural strength. Additionally each hive comes with a small satchel of old propolis that may be heated and applied to the top of the frames to lure passing swarms.
price : R450.00
