    Default OSB board???

    I am planning on building some swarm traps out of some free lumber I have access to. Some of it OSB board, I only planned on using the OSB for bottom pieces and I know that this is NOT choice material for outdoor hive equipment, but it's free! My question is this, will the glue in the fabrication of the board deter or harm the bees in any way? I have heard that some wood glues have Formaldehyde in them. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

    No, OSB is fine. The weather will do more to harm the OSB
