Needs upgrading inside.

For the money and shipping paid, these need an upgrade inside. I get that they say the cardboard inserts help the trap to smell like "wood" but it's cardboard. That's quite a stretch calling cardboard wood. After one year, (only put out during the 2-month peak swarm period), two of the straps that go around it to hold it together "dry-rotted and can't be used and the cardboard inserts got so swollen and /or "disfigured" that they can't be used again either. The front insert "legs" crumpled so bad and collapsed so that there isn't enough space for the bees to get in if they wanted to. I had to jimmy-rig them for this year with duck tape to get them to somewhat fit again. They sell carboard replacement inserts, but they are 1/2 they price of a new trap! They could make the inserts out of coroplast and solve this problem easily.

New design

I Love the Blythewood bee company , any past dealings with you guys have been nothing short of awesome..easy ordering good prices and prompt deliveries..,,not sure I like the new design on the new storm trooper. I liked the past design....but we will see. Hung the new and old ones a few days ago.. The proof will “bee” in the pudding

Complete Junk

You have to build this thing like a paper airplane and none of the "pre-folded" seams folded properly. After it was all put together it looked like someone beat it with a bat. I contacted Blytheville and they said they would let the vendor know. Do not buy this product get something else and save your money.
