I just have to give a big thank you to Iddee for his video on how to do trap outs. I watched your video at least 20 times thus making me into a professional trap outter
Hats off to you sir.
This trap out is basically done, I removed the cone 4 days ago, checked the old hive every day, saw no bees so I assumed there wasnt much honey to rob. Tonight I went to pull the trap and the old hive was getting robbed out. I've seen questions about what robbing looks like so I took a vid with my phone to show it. It's not the craziest robbing I've ever seen but robbing none the less. The tell tale signs are the behavior of the bees and the specs of wax left at the entrance. Sooooo, I left the nuc for a few more days until all the honey is robbed out. This is the final stage of a trap out if the homeowner doesn't want major bug problems in their wall later in the year due to degrading comb and who knows how much honey. The nuc weighs 35# easy by the way
