Re: Walnut tree trap-out
Forgive my newbee confusion, but the descriptions I've read of trapout systems before have always included some type of cone-shaped exit from the tree that prevents the bees from getting back in to their native hive. I don't see that in your design. What incentive do the bees have in this case to stay in the new hive instead of returning home? The open brood you placed in the new hive?
