He is much further south than me and you, SHB will get going sooner than for us. As the hive weakens the SHB will take over and decimate what is left, making what few bees are left abscond, thus cutting your trap out short. It only takes 2 to 3 days for the SHB to really work over a weakened hive. If you have never seen the work of SHB it is not pretty.
