Not sure it really makes any difference one way or the other, but .... I moved my newly-inhabited bait box to my hive stand this a.m. pre-dawn(bees calm, cool, collected). "Mostly" plugged the entrance reducer aperture with leaves - to slow the bees' exits down and have them reorient to their new digs (per what I'm told and have read).

So ... do I pretty much remove the leaves at days-end, or does it matter? Keep them there a few days? Wait 'til bees cluster in the front of the box or appear to be going about their standard pollen-/nectar-collecting business? :s

Any thoughts, observations, data would be appreciated ....
