I just recently designed a new swarm trap entrance that can be 3d printed and I would love some feedback. Let me know your thoughts. You can download and print the design free on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2340818

Simple Open/Closed swarm trap entrance. I was tired of fighting with using the circular entrance discs and wanted something a little cheaper and easier.

Features:
  • 1.75" entrance hole to accommodate most sizes of drilled entrance holes
  • Roofed entrance hole to protect from wind/rain
  • Entrance guard to prevent birds from entering
  • Vented closed side
  • Easy to manipulate slider - even with gloves!
  • Print or paint in whatever color you want

Looks good - although I would be concerned about the entrance roof breaking off when the trap is being moved. I try to be gentle with those bees but sometimes I get clumsy.
