The question is timing. Last year (after some reading) I set out two baited traps for wax moths-yellow jackets-and other nasties. As suggested: used a 2 liter pop bottle- hole at base of top neck (quarter size) with one part each water-sugar-vinigar and banna peals. Dang thing worked GREAT killed a bunch of bad bee things and NO bees.

The bees are flying now (after a misserable winter in NW Ohio) 3 of 6 hives so far active.

:scratch: Since the bees are out, should I put out the traps now or wait a bit?
Last year I put them out in late April or early June after reading about them.

Any input would be helpfull.
Thanks in advance.
