Its unseasonably warm here in Ohio. Forecast for the next 7 days: daytime temps predicted above 60 / nighttime temps above 40.
Got a call today. Bees are in a soffet. Homeowner saw swarm move in last year and notices that the bees are now flying with gusto. He wants them gone.
On the one hand, it seems like a great time to do the trap-out or cut-out; low populations, low stores. No fuss, no muss, right?
But is it too cold? Or too early? I'm confident we'll see snow and daytime freezing temperatures before winter ends.
What's my best play? Trap-out now or later? Cut-out now or later?
