    Had to go to town for supplies yesterday and stopped to look at the job. A tree trimming service is coming in to work on the trees and said they were going to spray the bee's. The owner does not want that. I put screen over the exit hole so they can do the tree trimming with minimal bee contact. I feel it is getting to late in the year for a trap out. What say you fellow bee keeps? it was 46F this morning. Tom

    I agree also, I've been getting calls everyday to do trap outs.
    I try and talk them into waiting until next spring (March) here in central Arkansas.
    I've got one trap-out left I'll be picking up Saturday unless it's raining.
    I've had such a good turn out on the trap outs that I've built a trap out kit.
    So far it's going good.
    I've been merging my weaker boxes and feeding 2-1 sugar syrup with home made Pro-Health.
    I do like the trap outs better than doing cut-outs. Trapout61813.jpg
