    Another trap out.

    These gals found a small crack that I did not get caulked up too good.

    Ef, I predrilled the holes in the bracket for the threaded rod before I put it up this time also. :thumbsup::lol::lol:

    Hey George, very nice video. Too bad about the queenless result, especially after all that work. I see you used a screened bottom board for the trap out, do you think this helps in situations like this?

    I used the screen bottom board because it was sooo hot, especially on that side of the brick building. When I first set it up I did slide a piece of plastic campaign sign under it to help get the bees going into the hive rather than under it.
