Yesterday, I started a trapout in the Red Cross Amish Community. Apparently a swarm moved into the tree a week or so ago. The owner was aftraid the bees might spook the horses on the road, and wanted the bees killed. I quit doing trapouts last year, due to lack of time and cost of gas, but, rather than see the bees killed, I said I would trap them out.
It was raining yesterday when I put the tree transition on. This morning it was still misting rain so I just went ahead and installed the trap. Next time the bees venture out, they will have to go through the trap.
I will take photos and post as the trap progresses.
