I made this swarm collection bucket according to the plans and instructions in the May 2011 of Bee Culture magazine. Basically I just bought a 5-gallon bucket with a snap-shut lid at Ace Hardware, cut off half the tabs on the lid for easier on/off action, cut out most of the plastic in the lid and replaced it with #8 hardware cloth. I stapled the hardware cloth to the top of the lid with 1/2" wood staples, flipped the lid over and bent the ends of the staples in by pressing down with my hammer.
