building hogan trap out
I built a hogan trap out box the other day with a deep box , and since my equipment now is all mediums I had planned on using medium frames in it. But after putting in the transition it looks like way to much space for them to come into the transition which is on the bottom and then climb up to the med. frames .I wanted to be able to just remove the frames from the trap and put them in a med .super and be done , I'd have all the bee's and any eggs and stores that they built up . Should I use deep frames and shake the bee's into medium box's , this seems like the only way as my medium foundation won't be at the right height if I expect the queen to walk out on to it .Or I could move the transition up higher so it lines up better with my med. frames .seems like it would be best to be able to just remove frames and put them in another box at the bee yard compared to shaking them off the deep frames . Need imput .
