Yes, I know - it's cardboard. I will be keeping up with the rain forecast diligently.
The box holds coax and power wire for CCTV camera. It has the two reinforced openings that served as handles/wire opening. Now they serve as bee entrances and top bar holders.
That spot on the top bar is one of the drops of lemongrass oil.
Can anyone produce any sort of reason a swarm would be completely repulsed by this fly-by-night/makeshift setup?
