Re: My new top bar bait hive
The trap looks good cnt, and your top bar looks good too. I use wedged bars, Popsicle sticks and I've had good luck with a piece of string covered with a dribble of bees wax. Counting the top bars your trap is probably about 40 liters which everyone says is the sweet spot for size. I too have built my traps like mini top bar hives but I made my ends out of 3/8 plywood and cut them with the angle of the sides. This makes them much lighter and easier to hang in a tree or whatever. Also I built them so my top bars are 17" long which enables me to convert them and place them in a Langstroth. Happy trapping.
