View Full Version : Why I don't do tree removals any longer

Because you need to cut the tree down to make it work. This was my attempt to make a one way exit work. HAH!

Is that a beech tree?
I think everything's going fine. Trapouts take a lot of time. They just look a bit confused to me. Give them a few more weeks. Did you bait the box with old comb and lemon grass? That will help.
Keep the pic commin'!

Try it like this. It works great.

I've never tried to take them out of a tree like that; I'd be more inclined to hang a swarm trap near the bee tree and hope I could catch a swarm...
Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Mine was actually an older pic (8-13-02 in bottom right of photo). iddee's looks like it would have a much better chance of success, but I've still read that you need to cut the tree down to guarantee things. I am not sure the type of tree.
I baited with drawn comb, maybe some pheromone (which I'm sure is somewhere in the freezer after all these years.
