Over this last season, I have done 4 trap-outs. I have read on the forum, that generally speaking, using just the cone traps, don't usually get the queen. I am feeling pretty lucky, out of the 4 I did, all 4 ended up with queens. I'm sure it's nothing I did right, probably just dumb luck. Whatever it is, I'm happy. They were each up for a total of 6 weeks.

queenbee3074... It could be dumb luck, but, there could be a logical explaination. For instance, they might have made a queen from a frame of unsealed brood, if you gave them one in the trapping process.

But, more likely, she came out at the end of the trapping process and went into your trap.
