My cheesy DYI Swarm-Trap

I threw a couple of these up this past month for the hell of it. I used duct tape to make starter strips, sealed it up and punched out an entrance.

There's been a decent amount of on & off interest over the past few weeks, and today I thought it worked. Sadly, within 20 minutes, the bees left before I did anything. Damn.

Swarm arriving at the box:

Update:

Turns out they left for another trap I had set up along my driveway, located 30 or so yards away. This is a simple cheap cardboard nuc box that I leave out on a ladder.

This is the second swarm in the past year that I've caught using this shitty box.
