I made this bee catcher out of a styrofoam cup and an A 4 paper. I got the ideas from the fish trap because fish like the bees have small brains … once they get into the trap, they can’t get out. And bees’ brains are even smaller.
I made this trap to catch the bees that have come into our classroom. They usually come to the window near Yendra, Tomoki and I and scare everyone near me.
My catcher really works.
I trapped 25 bees in it.
I picked the bees with a pair of scissors, and then threw them inside the bee catcher. I could hear them buzzing and bumping against the ceiling.
The bees are dead now. Once bees die they don’t give off a smell because their water evaporates very quickly and their body dehydrates quickly.
