Re: Medium frames in Bait Hive
I'm not sure that I buy into the notion that smaller traps are preferred by AHB. I live in an AHB positive county and have never trapped any AHB in my 5 frame deep nuc traps perhaps, anecdotally, confirming the exact opposite. tefer2 has given you a great way to deal with medium frames in a deep trap. I think you'll have equally good luck catching swarms in medium as opposed to deep traps if you use LGO for an attractant.
I also agree with gone2seed that if AHB are in my area I want them to occupy my traps and not takeover my hives which I've read they will do but have not witnessed.
Based on the fact that my county is considered AHB positive and I have not trapped any yet, I'm thinking the whole AHB thing is way overblown.
When you stop learning you're dead.
