Re: swarm trap success rate?
I'm going to put out 36 traps this year, baited with LGO, old comb or Bee Scent, and I've already scouted out likely areas. I have 2 spots that were productive last year and I'm thinking of setting out smaller feeder jars in the areas I don't know if there are bees or not. I thought this might be a good way to find out if there are bees in the surrounding area to catch because here on the prairies there are miles to cover and bees won't be everywhere. What do you guys think?
