What you're saying makes sense to me BlueBee. I thought all beetle could fly if they wanted to. I had ask the man about the beetle getting in and he said that "yeah, some will still get in but the bees will see them and push them through the wire cloth and into the oil below" Well if the bees can do that, then why go to all this trouble of fancy building? Just let them push them all through!
@ Jim, Just putting wire across the whole bottom sounds like a better idea than what I've been setting up to build.. I've got two here and I'll build more for anybody that wants them but for me IF
I do do da bee thing, I'm going to go with 8 frame medium boxes and the simple bottom frame. At least from what I've gleaned from this site so far that's what I'd do..... but about the time things are making some good sense to me I read something else and I feel I went back to square one!! LOL
PS.... Hey BlueBee..... don't get pushy!! LOL
