    I did this with a 2 liter soda bottle a few years ago.
    If you have a dog, you have bait, if you get my drift.
    Worked like a charm.
    Thanks for a great Instructable!

    Its impossible for them to fly or get out of the hole, because of the shape.

    Great for "distracting" bees too - then you can release them safely away from kids. African bees can be quite nasty and unwelcome at picnics and camp-sites.
