Make a Swarm Trap

Help out the bee by making a swarm trap – a safe house for honey bees. In this workshop, you will make your very own swarm trap to take home and install with the hope of providing shelter to a bee colony. Join in on a pre-fab trap design workshop and learn about swarming, swarm traps, and the best time and locations to install them. In collaboration with Hotel Hotel’s resident beekeeper you will learn what to do if you do attract a colony and how to protect their complex architecture including wax and comb. By setting up safe bee houses in our cities, suburbs and the bush, we can prevent the destruction of bee colonies. Long live the bee.

There are no live bees at this workshop.
