Completed low budget bait boxes w/ Fung Shui entrance
I made the three budget bait boxes today (2 deeps, 1 medium) from what I
think are whole fish shipping containers. I found them outside sushi joints and one is marked salmon from Canada. They are close to proper beespace depth but way to long. I placed the frames in the middle of the length, which allowed for good Fung Shui. There is now an entrance hallway before entering the main residence. On one I added a screened vent hole. Total investment, eight drive screws each, two square inches of 1/8" screen, some glue and some scrap plywood. Should I paint them? Will they be subject to quick ultraviolet deterioration?
I am going to use frames headed for the melter and use these boxes in locations I might not get them back.
Opinion: the Styrofoam is too flimsy, not high density.
My latest find: insulated packing crate bait hive
This one will take some clever carpentry.
It fits a deep frame pretty close, but is heavily stapled together and frames will be most easily reached from the open end without major renovations.
