One of my swarm traps I made so that the top bars would fit my KTBH.

Thanks it has 11 top bars that will fit my hive. A 1 1/8 entrance hole with a nail splitting the hole to keep birds out.

Do wasp take up residence in them and will this matter to the bees.

Looks like the photo is no longer on the server

Also looks like his avatar photo is lost too.  But the good news is that Stlnifr was on the forum this morning, so he is not lost and can hopefully repost the picture.

two years ago I had an empty TBH nuc that is basically the same as the one Stlnifr  shows that had a swarm settle in it.  I was very glad I had kept the top bars in place.  Made it very easy to transfer the new colony to a full sized hive after they had time to get established.

Yes wasps and finches seem to like my swarm traps.  No, in my experience the bees don't move in if it's occupied already.
