bait traps
« on: February 25, 2014, 12:16:13 PM »
last year I tried  two drops in a hive body no luck, even though it was placed two feet in front of a over crowded hive.

4 days ago we used 15 drops lemon oil 5 on each side and 5 on the top,. all drops were inside the bait box.

shaszam 4 days later bingo they moved in.

cool!  thanks Kevin

Way to go. I would have though that was too much. Keep an eye on them sometimes they then move out if the smell is too strong after they move in.
