In this section, we document our best practices to help you with the management of your bees.

Swarm Control - The Classic Pagden Method

If you only ever learn one method of basic swarm control, this is the one used by most beekeepers.

Swarm Control - The Modified Pagden Method

This method is identical to the "Classic Pagden" except it is not necessary to find and move the queen to the new brood box (the artificial swarm).

Comb Change - The Bailey Method

We need to change our brood combs at least every 3 years to prevent the spread of diseases and infections.  The Bailey comb change is our recommended method.
