We will be testing a new (for us) bee
trap this year. This involves a large circular pan (e.g., cut out
bottom of a bucket), and a plexiglass/lucite upright baffle, which
acts as a window pane style trap. I have seen several versions of
this trap, but to my understanding it hasn't been tested against other
This will be a simple test with paired
traps with and without baffles.
Also, a friend of mine put together
a sample time-lapse video of this trap and posted it at:
I would encourage others to experiment
with this style trap, I and others have noted that many bees simply "buzz"
bowls rather than land in them and this trap, in combination with glycol
could be very handy in some locations.
