Keep us updated!  I've been thinking about these as well.
My hives absconded, I think due to SHB.

 ;) been using i per hive over this summer here in hot,humid sydney Australia, traps seem to catch quite a few, but I also use the CD case with a little roach bait . It all helps, lost 2 hives previous summer but so far so good this year.

Wonder if a CD case would work with oil of some kind inside them?? That's a great idea ericthebee !!!
