Hello all -
I have completed a trapout which was started about 2-1/2 months ago. NO bees are coming out of the cone whatsoever, furthermore there has been no activity from the tree entrance for at least 4 days. The hive will be removed in the next day or so. The only question I have is what to do with the old entrance / hole in the tree where the bees were before? Perhaps seal it up with a small piece of plywood? Any suggestions for sealing up the old hive location would be great. The hole is about the size of a tennis ball. The only goofy criteria I am working with is - this tree is in the middle of someone's front yard and they want it to be very "unnoticeable".
