Fascinating read, thanks.

I wonder if the RF from the transmitters might affect some bees more than others?

Or the tags, themselves. I would like to see those tags. Interesting  bee

I did not see what they used in this study but I have seen RF tags for bees. They look like they are a tiny number tag, like you can buy for marking queens, with a wire, about the size of a hair, sticking up about one inch.
The study that I saw, the sensors were very short ranged. They measured what direction, flight inside of the radar range, and time in the field.
I'm sure it added some drag and weight but the bees got used to it.

Robo has some GOOD information on them..  heres his PDF, and check his site too!

I am trying to figure out what differences there are between the 1/4"luan plywood and the 3/8" ply in the Bushkill Swarm Trap. Is it just a matter of one being stronger? or is one more weather resistant?

I wonder about making them out of
coroplast or
plastic coated insulation?

Would the bees chew up the insulation?
or would it tend to repel them as in they wouldn't want to go there?

        When I was a kid migratory beekeepers only went north to south like Florida to New England or Texas to the Dakotas or Califonia to Washington and then you have a lots of the Canadian beekeepers would come to southern USA for the winter.

        In 1988, Merrimack Valley Beepunchers AKA Merrimack Valley Apiaries became the first commercial outfit to ship bees to California from Florida and South Carolina for the almond pollination.

        I did work for Andy Card Sr. in the early 80's in Billerica Massachusetts.

All seems to be well now.No bees on the ground and they all seem to be working fine.  No signs of diarrhea.We had a good rain so hopefully that helped if  pesticides were the culprit,Thanks for all the help. applause

Welcome to the forum. A lot of good information is available here. Go to the honey bee removal section. There are volumes of videos on how to collect swarms, remove bees from walls and how to do trap outs.
