    My vote: Assuming you are not under time pressure from mid season dearth or decline, stick as close to nature as possible, your Q cells are already made. If you are lucky: < 2 weeks to hatch,...

    I'd try the bucket and the sheet. If you miss, they still have a shot at the bait hives. But as kebee says, time is of the essence.

    IMO, capped is the bee seal of approval on a finished product.
    On a mixed frame with capped and uncapped, I will do a "shake test."
