Hi all,

I built a SHB trap, Basiacly I took 2 2x4 and cut them to supprt a cookie sheet. Then I used 1/4" harware cloth, as a SBB filled the tray with water... TADA SHB trap w/ Hive entrance.

Today, a week later, I found quite a few dead bees in the trap. Any avice on how to keep the bees safe and SHB dead?

Also, is there any chance the queen will drop and fall into the trap?

Thx!
