Question Swarm trap sizes

Question

Could I use a 3/4 super as a swarm trap or am I better off with a FD box?

Swarms come in all shapes and sizes! So sorry but the answers similar to, “How long is a piece of string?”. I’ve had tiny swarms in a four frame & one so big it bulged out of a double full depth. (After it had fallen off a tree and spread its self on uneven ground.)

Put out what you’ve got and make sure the frames are thickly and freshly waxed.

Use 2 x 3/4.  Works fine.

Or a FD with ¾ frames so they can be easily integrated once settled
