    Re: Taking care of my winter boredom

    Can you give a little detail / dimensions on how you built this? Looks like a cut 2x4 for the sides? Amazing work from scratch.

    Re: Top entrance

    Synthetic Queen Lures - Thoughts?

    I just ordered a few packets from Mann Lake. Any thoughts? I set mine with Lemongrass, which got instant response. Will the Synthetic Queen Pheromone do the same?
