Default Honey bee swarm traps

I hung a few swarm traps this year hoping to attract some new bees (no luck yet). Some of you might be interested in how I decided to hang the traps especially if you have trees you don't want to damage with nails etc.. It's important the trap is level so comb is drawn parallel to the frames allowing their removal. I'm sure there are other ways to do it but this worked for me:

Good job and also you need to add an old piece of honey comb in order to attract bees. Check the swarm trap often.
