I will be using some 5 frame NUCS as traps this year. I plan on cutting a hole about 1" or so in the front of the box and drilling some small air holes in the rear. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
My question now is does color of the hive box really matter. I have some Yellow paint, bought it at a paint store, it was mismatched so it was really cheap. I also have several gallons of various colors of mismatched paint that I have been buying when I see it. to be honest, I have no idea what color that will be when it is all mixed together.
So, does color matter?
Any input, thoughts, personal experiences are appreciated.
