Re: Hogan trap out sequence
Cleo, I have a new computer and don't have instructions you emailed to me last summer--could you send them again?
My co-worker's son found a bee tree (he is a future beekeeper and I think he wants me to set up a trap out for the fun of it. We want to leave the queen--I would use starts for a couple small hives, depending how strong the tree bees are.
I have the pre made trap out, and the red cone is in at this time. I still have a screen and tape on outer tunnel where I can easily apply to the tree, and it sounds like it's about 4-5 feet from the ground. I haven't seen it yet to determine if I will have a problem with other entrances.
I will know when to pull trap as to not depleat the tree bees too much?
Thanks, hope I'm not hijacking this thread...so sorry if I am.
