Michael Bush is very knowledgeable regarding Flow Hives.
I will share this again; last season I used these traps and they WORKED! They caught yellow jackets, wax moth, hornets, flies, and NO HONEY BEES. I got the recipe from Rusty Burlews Honey Bee Suite,...
My brother has one he is in California. It took about 2 years for the bees to wax the Flow supers. He does like the hive though.

MrWright, I forgot to mention to sign up for Ron Miksha’s blog titled: Bad Beekeeping Blog. He is from your neck of the woods, a very informed experienced beekeeper. Deb
