The Swarms.ie “Property Protector” is a specifically adapted beehive intended to divert bees looking to move into your home, but instead into a reusable beehive.
The “Property Protector” comes with a honeybee lure to attract the attention of honeybee scouts, which precede the swarm proper.
The lure should last for 1 season (1 summer).
Once a swarm of honeybees takes up residence within the “Property Protector”, simply take a 1 minute video, and email it to us here at Swarms.ie
Swarms.ie will organise a local beekeeper to come and relocate the bees at no charge, making the “Property Protector” ready to continue protecting.
The “Property Protector” is a pesticide free, reusable and bee safe approach to diverting unwanted honeybee swarms away from the home.
