Sealing the entrance after trapout
« on: June 23, 2010, 06:00:03 PM »
I'll be trying my first trapout this weekend.

I'm not sure about sealing the entrance afterwards.

The bees are entering underneath some flashing around the chimney, where the chimney meets the roof.  I thought this had to stay open to allow any water/moisture out from under the flashing?  How would I go about sealing this area without affecting the purpose of the opening?

The same type screen you made the cone from.
