Re: SHB Anonymous
with all the traps out there that I have tried that are not worth anything, the best I have found are inline feeders that I make with two floats in them, after the feed is empty the bees stick the floats to the bottom of the feeder. when you come to refill the feeder you can't get the bees out of the feeder using smoke, they look like they are at a track meet running around. use your hive tool to dislodge the floats, pull the feeder and turn it upside down and shake out the bees on top of an outer cover, have hive tool ready, my record so far is 40 shb in one feeder, would have been better but some flew away.
