Many people are interested in swarm traps this year. It seems there are many questions like how to build, where to place, what to put in them, and so on. Of course someone here will answer all those questions.

But may I suggest for those who are setting out swarm traps, an excellent book on the topic. It covers swarming, control, causes, prevention, etc. It is a collection of articles that include some really great research from Cornell University. The book costs $5.00 and that included shipping the last time I checked.

You can get it from Root publications by calling 1-800-289-7668 and asking for item #X56 called swarming.

Pritt,
I called today and they confirmed that the book is being discontinued. I grabbed the last couple they had. I'll be more than happy to send you a copy. The book costs me $5 and I'm not sure what media mailing for overseas is, but I'll check at the post office if your interested. Should not be more than 2-3 dollars.

Take care.

Bjorn, how about posting the name and the author's name here. Maybe we can find it on Amazon, either new or used.

Now why would I do that??? Didn't you just read that I snatched up the last copies and for the incredible low price of $29.95, I'll be glad to send you a copy... :lol:

There is no author. It is a collection of articles published in Bee Culture over the years, with supporting research. It covers research at Cornell, with people such as Bonney, Ott, Morse, and others. It is a soft cover book of 62 pages. But for anyone wanting to learn about swarms, it is very good to have.

The ISBN is 0-936028-09-2

Kind regards

Pritt,
I finally got the shipment.
Do me a favor, send me your shipping info again, and I'll get a copy out ASAP. I know I have it somewhere but it will save time if you just send it to me.
Take Care, Mike.
