Set the trap out on tree #1 of #2. High Schooler asked me if I help him get started with some bees so I told him sure bring your equipment and gear we will set this trap out on this tree. I grabbed a bar of honey and fresh eggs along with some comb from last year for the bait box and headed to the tree 2 miles from the house. I took these pictures today when I checked on them. There was a dead bee in the cone and by the time I got a piece of wire to dig it out they had already dragged it back and were coming out. The deep box was half full of bees working comb and bringing in pollen. I did not move any bars and will wait until next Saturday to check for a queen cell. I ordered a back up queen that will arrive this Friday or Saturday just in case. I had a screen to reduce the entrance but the bees were so backed up I removed it to give them full access to the hive and man were they coming and going. Did I mention that the place is crawling with poison ivy?
