I grew up on the family farm with horses, sheep, cattle, fowl, dogs, cats, & a lot of other critters in north central Maryland. While the farm paid for itself, the family remodeling business was the steady income. I worked at that for about 15 years until an injury forced me to change my computer hobby into my career. It was tough at the time, but a great career move from an economic standpoint.
Now I'm the entire IT department for a small manufacturing company in Louisville, KY. My wife of 35+ years & I have a small hobby farm with horses, goats, dogs, & a cat. Taking care of the farm, woodworking, & various fiber arts take up my free time.

I put the trap right next to 3 active nests. The first day I got nothing. 2nd day I got 5 and left them in the trap, like it was recommended. Now, almost a week later I emptied it out and caught 18. I didn't think there were even that many around my deck... I am sure that I got the majority of the hive, but I put 2 back in the trap and hung it to get the stragglers. This trap definitely works.
