Will I am going to try my first trap out.  I have a home with a brick wall on the outside and open interior wall so a cut out just seemed to be a bad plan.  What is the odds of getting the queen out on a trap out.  My hive is new so I'm not ready to pull a brood frame out.  So any suggestions would be welcome.

One in a hundred, maybe 200.

Wait until you can get a frame with eggs. A frame with a 2 inch circle of eggs is all you need.

I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

So you are saying the interior wall has been opened? The bees are between brick and what? Vapor barrier, blackboard, wood?

No they are behind tongue and grove wall on the inside and brick on the outside.  What I mean is it is an open interior design no doors to isolate the area in the house.  I know I could do plastic and create walls to confine the bees.  The home is a land mark home so cutting is not really a good plan unless everything else fails.
