Technical question - do you place your crazy lure concoction INSIDE or OUTSIDE of your traps?
I might increase the lure levels this year but I want do it OUTSIDE of the trap, I think.
The insides of my traps are very well primed with propolise and I got plenty of old combs.
I only want to attract the scouts just close enough to my traps so the scouts can check them out. I don't want the concoction inside.
