I decided to start a new thread due to I think this may be a new trap-out. I had taken all of the bees off of the house trap-out I was doing. There was no activity for over a week. I went there Wednesday to remove my equipment from the house and seal it up. First thing I seen when I drove up was bees flying around the entrance. As I got closer I could see bees coming out of my trap cone. I talked to the owner and he told me last Sunday there were bees flying all over his yard. He said towards the end of the day they clustered on the house about ten feet down the wall from the original entrance and then they formed a line going up the wall to a small crack in the bricks. I didn't know what to think so I went and got a nuc box with some drawn comb and foundation and placed it on my trap stand.
I made sure the crack in the bricks was sealed with caulk. I went back today and there was still bees coming out of the trap cone but not getting back in the crack in the bricks. There is already a lot of bees in the nuc box and building. Did another swarm slip in and is this a two-for trap-out?
