Re: The shb just may soon be a pest of the past
I watched the video and it looks like the best innovation of all the traps. I have been using the Cutts trap lately and they work well but the shb have to enter the hive and end up on the top bars before being chased into the traps. I also use the west trap that gets them as they enter the hive and it works really well but the front corners are week and crack with use and the oil leeks and can make a real mess. I’m using foundationless frames. Some of the bees are smaller and it looks like smaller bees might be able to get into the trap. Might have to reduce the beetle entrance some. The pull out tray looks great cause ya have to disturb the bees with all the other traps.
I’m really not that serious
