I found this, a post by Linda...she has a fantastic blog...check it out!
I've now heard from both Mel and Sonny, the two inventors of this SHB trap. They say I can use the lure immediately but best if it ages in the sun for a day tomorrow. They put the trap on the top of the hive and enclose it in a shim made with a 1X2 board - I assume that is a box made with a one by two - the size of a super.
Although I only have a hand saw, I'll bet I can saw through a 1x2 and nail it into a box to do this...can't be much different than nailing together the many supers I have now hammered together. I tell you, if I keep on beekeeping, I'll get good at construction yet!
I posted the beginning of this process on my blog (making the lure) http://beekeeperlinda.blogspot.com/2007/04/full-on-attack-against-small-hive.html
I'll keep on posting there, so if you are interested in fighting the SHB, keep watching and I'll let you know how it goes.
