My First Trap Out
Well, I have been working with Iddee on my first trap out. It has been an interesting experience with tons of learning.
Here are some pictures:

The side of the house had a lot of cracks so I closed up any possible entrance.
Thanks for sharing those pic's are very helpful. Not trying to bee lazy and not look myself but what size is the small side of the wire cone?
Checked on the nuc today that is by the trap out cone and they are FULL of bees. It is so neat to see!
How do you get the queen out? Did she moved into your nuc by herself?
