I taped Bee Insect Membrane-winged insect Pest Honeybee
off the entrance to my hive to do an oxalic acid treatment. I forgot to take the tape off. I checked the hive today and found that the tape had caught almost exclusively drones. I don't know if it's because they are bigger and less athletic and couldn't escape or what. Seems like an interesting possibility for reducing your drone population if you are so inclined.
