Pops is undergoing some major reconstruction this year and won’t be able to produce bee traps this spring. He will be back next year and maybe later this summer depending on how things go. Thank you for your support!

    I would love to get some instructions on how to build one myself? Do you sell the plans?

      Ann, you are so very sweet! He’s doing quite a bit better and just a few weeks ago was telling me that his energy was starting to return. They say that it takes a full year after major heart surgery to start feeling “yourself” again — and he started feeling better in the 12th month following, so I think they must be right. You are an angel to ask about him and I’ll be sure to tell him that you did!

      No, I’m so sorry Francesca, I’m pretty sure that Pops won’t be doing bee traps this year, but thanks so much for asking!

    I am wanting to make my own trap, but will this work on honey bees also?

      No, it won’t work on honey bees — and you wouldn’t want it to. Honey bees are beneficial and shouldn’t be harmed. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you Philip! That is so sweet of you. Pops is doing better, but there won’t be any traps for sale this year. I’m hoping he can heal up enough to offer them again next season. ๐Ÿ™‚ He had 5-bypass surgery, so it’s going to take him a little time to bounce back — but he’s doing REALLY well!

    These bee traps are AWESOME!! My husband thought I was nuts when I showed him your idea on Pinterest, but he made them anyway and we were amazed! First year we didn’t trap as many as we had hoped, but this year it’s like a magnet for them. Thanks, Pops, for the ingenious idea and plan.

      Thank you so much Kathleen! He’s healing up, but it’s going to take a while, I’m afraid. I’ll tell him that you wished him well.:)

      Debbie, I’m so sorry but due to health issues, Pops can’t make the bee boxes right now — I’ll be sure to announce it here once he is feeling better! He’s on the road to recovery ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Larry. Thank you so much for your inquiry. Unfortunately, Pops has just been released from the hospital and is not yet back out in his shop. He and I are both so sorry that we can’t get a couple of these for you. As soon as he’s able, I’ll be announcing it (with much fanfare!!!) right here on LivingSmall.com.

          Thank you so much, Carol! I’ll tell him you wished him well. It will probably be next year before he builds more traps. ๐Ÿ™‚
