I have a Bee tree that I am trying to seal off one of the entrances so I can do a Hogan trap on it, what kind of material do I use that will not harm the bees and will last. This tree has 2 entrance holes. I'm trying to seal off the bottom.

Thanks,
Clark

Use 3 mil black plastic. It will block the entrance and the light. If bees can see light, they will fixate on the light, and just stay there trying to get out. Lowe's and Home Depot sell what is called contractor bags. They are barrel size and when you cut them, one bag will cover a large area.

Hi Mr.Beeman, Tuscaloosa is back to pretty much normal. At first a lot of city and zoning regulations kept things slow but the city is better now than before with a lot of new businesses, in some of the more rural outskirts there are still some places that haven't been rebuilt and probably will not. Thank you for coming to my city and doing so much. I've been very fortunate and the storm didn't come near my house while others lost so much. I work at the largest hospital in west alabama and the storm missed it as you know by a few hundred yards. I was working that night in the ER when it hit and for nearly a 24 hour span after. So many people like yourself helped so many here that were in desperate situations. There is no telling how many people's lives you touched over that month. Again thank you!
