Re: [beemonitoring] Painting making bowls fragile [1 Attachment]
I use the 12 oz stadium cup method here in Arizona. I use the Krylon plastic primer first then spray the fluorescent yellow and blue on the cups. I set the traps for one week per month. I don't leave them out during the interim period. So far except for paint peeling from a few spots that I obviously missed with the primer my cups are still as strong as before. Another advantage to the stadium cups is that they of course are stackable and very sturdy. I can just stack them and throw them in a box in the truck as I check trap sets. The Handy Bee Manual has a write-up of this method if your are interested.
