5.0 out of 5 stars Happy with our skep 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Did not disappoint, and received promptly. We have it hanging in our garden for any swarms in the area, and also as a lure to our own honeybees should they decide to swarm. Robust construction. Very happy, thanks for great service.

As a keen beekeeper I am anxious to have the best kit to catch swarms. This is an appropriate piece of equipment and gives me confidence in approaching this procedure.
