Hey guys,
I just got all my swarm traps built.  The plans came from Robo's site.  Thanks Rob. 
I already spray painted the top left one.  I can't wait for spring to get these up. 


I had recently posted a question about the swarm lure to use on these and greatly appreciate all your responses.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Awesome! They look great! Are they 3/8 plywood? The size of 5-frame nuc boxes? Have something inside to hang frames? Spill the beans with details. Inquiring minds want (and need) to know! grin grin

By the way gardeningfireman,
Something that wasn't in the plans, is where the frame rest should be mounted on the front and back plates.  I asked robo (since these are his plans), and he suggested mounting the frame rest 3/4" down from the top of the front and back plate to allow for beespace.
Hope that helps,
James
