HI iddee. I think that i will wait a couple more weeks because the weather is changing for the worst. The temps are droping. Hopefully it will warm up in a couple. But I will decide by then and hope for your advice. Rich

Ok Iddee, If the trapout only yeilds the queen 10% of the time, then would I not be better off doing a cutout. That way I have a higher percentage of getting the queen and her genetics. Afterall, I would think that her genetics are probably pretty good considering her colony has survived. What do you think?

A cut out is always better when it can reasonably be done. Trap outs are used only when a cut out is totally not feasible. In your situation, a cut out would be much better.

I will be out of town Fri & Sat., so I won't be posting again before Sat. night.
