I put up a total of 9 traps this season and lost 3. One was destroyed about a month ago and I am guessing kids. The trap was completely smashed and laying on the ground but they left the frames alone. I went to check 2 of my traps that are far from home today and one was gone and the other had been opened, all the frames removed and sealed back up. It's annoying that we do all the work and some idiot steals for fun or for the bees that we trapped. On a side note I still caught a total of 4 swarms in the other traps so it was still good experience.
