Looks good Pat. You seem convinced that this is an established hive. How long have the homeowner's noticed the bees?
I don't suppose the letter carrier or FedEx will come near your trashy cone. Probably scare off most burglars too.
Passers by have to be doing double takes saying "what the hell...." J
Kinda wonder if any poison had been used, seeing what's hanging from the door frame?
Looks like a success! J
So after this is done, do you (or a contractor) go into the wall from the inside to remove the comb? This is really cool. Also, is the little battery light for warmth at night?
Thanks Pat, great video, and education. I was wondering if the queen would come out, along with everyone else in a trap out. Now I know it doesn't always happen. Thanks again for sharing!
Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.
Most of the supplies are consumed by the remaining bees over the month's period because no supplies are able to get back in during that time.
It's mostly dry comb by the time the trap is done.
Warmth light? Lol, well, not really. We are in Florida.
But thanks for commenting and watching. It's much appreciated.
